The preseed appendix currently says:

  "The keymap must be valid for the selected keyboard architecture."

If we don't support all valid keymaps, I would be in favor of changing
this to:

  "The keymap must be known to the debian-installer for the selected
   keyboard architecture."

Or any better wording…

Jérémy Bobbio                        .''`.
