Bug#437018: Network shouldn't be used/enforced on non-network installs

I guess having it look for a network in the background and silently fail would be preferable, in any case.  Is this doable?

Probably not. Having a system with immediate support for security
updates is one of the key features of Debian. Doing this would defeat
that design choice.

I'm letting other D-I team members give their advice and decide
whether this bug report should be kept or marked "wontfix".
