I know this is not a valid assertion, but others distributions do this.
When I install debian-based workstations, I always setup an LDAP server
to centralize the account management, and I think the possibility to
setup automatically this feature on client machine directly in the
installer would be very useful.

Can it be done? So, can I implement it in d-i?
Or better, would be useful if I try to implement it? 

Yes, I know that 90% of users don't use LDAP-based authentication, but
IMHO this can be a very very important feature for a quick setup of a
large debian-based workstation network...

As I said, other distributions do this and I think there is a valid
motivation for it. How many possibilities I have to convince the d-i
team to introduce LDAP autoconfiguration? :)
