Both beta1 and beta2 also default to American English keymap if you boot with 'console-keymaps-at?=de' (i.e: with the seen flag not set). And if you boot beta1 with 'console-keymaps-at=de', you will get the 'de' keymap selected, not the 'de-latin1-nodeadkeys' one! So basically in the past passing 'de' would "work" but only because by accident a keymap named "de"  does exist, *not* because it was expanded into a valid value from the selection list. The only really valid value for preseeding has always been 'de-latin1-nodeadkeys'. Because of this, I would say the recent change was a bugfix and not a regression.  /usr/share/keymaps/i386/qwertz/de.kmap.gz
