There are just too many options to document and an added issue is that a 
lot of them are not under the D-I team's control. Any attempt to document 
them all by us would only result in unreadable and outdated info, 
resulting in confusion and installation failures.

The procedure to discover any additional options you may need for a 
particular preconfigured installation is documented in (second half):

The procedure is:
- start with the example preconfiguration file
- if you still get asked any questions or are unsure about allowed values,
  do a *manual* installation and use output from 'debconf-get-selections'
  to tune the preconfiguration file.
