IMO it only makes sense if we were at least to check that a preseeded 
keymap does actually exist and thus can be loaded correctly. In the 
absence of such code you are IMO advocating a really weird sort of 
pseudo-functionality which we have nowhere else in the installer.

The correct way to support something like that would be to add a "manual 
selection" option.

That is of course an option. Only problem may be that keymaps can
"chainload" other keymaps as a base. Don't know if that is the case here.
