Re: [d-i daily 040605] Potentially misleading DHCP retry screen

"If you do not choose this option, you will be prompted to configure

Never ever refer to any specific user action or debconf widget in a
debconf template. This is a very common mistake and everyone needs to
know this is B.A.D

Depending on the interface, the user may be presented with something
else than a Yes/No choice in boolean templates. Sure, currently, the
installer uses either the dialog/newt or the text interfaces...but
this may change in the future.

Besides this, what do others think about this suggestion?
