The rationale of the language priority being set to high was similar
to all other questions: the answer is not absolutely mandatory for the
install to run, given that the installation can be run in English
without compromising the result.

Of course, I understand your concerns here and changing the language
question could be imagined....the only drawback being that it would be
kind of a precedent for other questions being raised at "critical"

I'd like to have other's advice and feeling about this.

Indeed, that raises an interesting d-i enhancement possibility: why
not allow users to preseed....the questions priority rather than the

This would allow CDD to adjust the questions priority to their needs
without changing the D-I code.

I don't know if that's feasible...but probably worth being discussed.
