A few remarks:

* "loading additional components — expanding the installer to its full functionality)"
  ( is missing 
* I wonder about the mini.iso installation method. Never heard of it, found
  also no reference to it on http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/.
  Ah, it's mentioned later in chapter 3 again. Maybe refer to this in a footnote!
-The relaxed policy requirements make one of the reasons that udebs should to be installed on a normal system. 
+The relaxed policy requirements are one of the reasons that udebs should *not* be installed on a normal system. 
-Note the special section.
+Note the special debian-installer section.
 Or do you refer to something different?

 Is is sometimes useful to use only one of
 Section: debian-installer
 XC-Package-Type: udeb?
* You use both "Sarge" (capitalised) and "sid" notation!

I suggest to link to this document from somewhere below
www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/. Maybe you should create a new page for
developer documentation which contains useful links.
