Hm, I tried this, but it didn't work - neither for ext3 nor
xfs.  Are you sure about the syntax?

Btw, it would be nice to have more about partman recipes
in the debian installer manual, e.g. a table with all
available options and their exact syntax.  IMHO preseeding
becomes the killer application for d-i and partman-auto is
one of most important parts of automatic installation.
