Ok. Does this mean that it is not possible to re-create
using the web interface?
If yes, this should definitely be documented. I assumed that if I
wanted to make small changes to the official image I could build such
an image with the web interface.

I personally can certainly do that or even just run "lh build" in my
unstable chroot but people who know little about debian and just want
to test if it works on their machine are surely not going to figure it
out. (Also, I assume this method fails with ISO images.)
However, I have to admit that changing keyboard layout is irritating
for me mostly since it requires me to use the mouse under GNOME a lot

Ok, I think this is the largest usability problem of the current
interface. Instead of documenting all options, how about just
documenting the most commonly wanted ones?
1) gnome system with network manager, openoffice and iceweasel.
=> plain "gnome" did not include network manager and I could not use wifi.
=> should this be "gnome-full"?
2) fairly minimal system without X
=> should this be "standard"?
