I've probably been looking at an old d-i gtk iso, and
I think you're right. 
For times (not error or note dialogs) when the user is
prompted, perhaps the short description/question
should be on the bottom, near the answer (text box or
options). I guess this is just the way it's already
done in the newt interface.

By the way, who thought of the look and functionality
of the newt interface? Every time I have a doubt about
something (like this one), the newt interface has got
it perfect! I always knew it had a clever design, but
it gets better and better as I look into it.
