Well, that's entirely different from menu-items in openssh-client-udeb,

  * Where would you put this question?

  * How would it activate ssh support? At the moment, you can't install
    additional installer components after anna has run, as far as I can

  * I don't think you'd want to install the server as well. The cases
    where you want an ssh server in the installer are very specialized,
    and they can have their own initrds (in fact, some of them already

I can see the appeal of that kind of UI, though.
