This is my idea, yes.

Ubiquity installer instead seems to copy the rootfs on a partition and then 
remove the "live" part and do some finishing touches.

The ubiquity approach could be surely be faster than d-i/g-i but I do not 
think we want to support a different way of installing debian besides than 
the official one.
