network-console is *not* only used for headless devices so I'm not in 
favor of linking these two.

I have no idea if a udeb for rescue-initramfs is needed. If all it would 
do is install the regular package then a separate udeb would be serious 

What is needed here is a proper analysis of when exactly rescue-initramfs 
is wanted and at what stage of the installation it should be installed 
(pkgsel or finish-install I would say). The first question should provide 
an answer to how its installation should be triggered.
