IIRC, abandoning the FTP/HTTP choice was a deliberate action.

opinions may have changed, especially for expert mode.

Should be a wishlist bug, with the correct title, yes.

control@b.d.o should take care of my request I sent a minute ago

Strange. You really would need to explain the exact sequence of
actions you ran to get to this.

- start installer in expert mode
- when asked for Installer Components to load select choose-mirror
- you will be asked for repository-information twice
- on a 2nd install I saw that you get repo-info questions (choose-mirror)
even if you don't select choose-mirror to load, so it's a little logic error
it seems that happens when you select choose-mirror which is only a
a little irritating, no real problem.

Certainly. The wishlist above belongs to it.

No, you can reassign and manipulate a bug report by mail. See
http://bugs.debian.org as described in

Which is what I'm doing in this mail, BCC'ed to
control@bugs.debian.org (usual way, mostly meant to avoid users
inadvertently replying to control@b.d.o)

I've sent a request for setting the sever_ity to wishlist.
