Ah, sorry, I should have mentionned that there is a difference between
debian-installer and cd-image

Only daily builds of the _debian-installer_ do include BRLTTY. They can
be found on http://people.debian.org/~joeyh/d-i/images/daily/ .

cd-image only uses the latest _published_ version of debian-installer
only, i.e. for now 2006-03-04 (you can see this in apt-cache policy
debian-installer ), i.e. too old for now. But as soon as the
debian-installer team relases a new version, daily builds of cd-image
will include BRLTTY.

IIRC, they are considering this indeed. See the Accessibility part of
their project.
