Why can't you start a shell and create the partitions, then restart
partman and continue the installation?

In the end you may also have problems booting the installed system.
Last time I checked (half a year ago, perhaps) the mdadm initramfs
integration could not handle partitionable arrays or version 1
superblocks.  Of course things may have changed since then.  Or I may
not remember correctly (my specific reason was different).
