This is covered in Appendix B currently:
http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/en.i386/apbs02.html

There is a clear link in para 6.3.2.1 to this appendix, but maybe something 
like "You can also find information about the recommended minimal size for 
partitions in this appendix." could be added.

Cheers,
