efi-reader in its current for is NOT suitable for x86, so it would first 
have to be _made_ useful before this makes sense. It's actual current 
functionality is extremely limited and IMO does not really add any value 
to the installer.
It is even quite possible that it does not even work as intended with the 
current version of localechooser (after all, it has basically been 
unmaintained since 2005 and we've had HUGE changes in D-I since then).

If a proposal is submitted (after consensus preferably followed by 
patches) that would make efi-reader useful for x86 _and_ would ensure 
that it does not get in the way of installs on non-efi systems, we will 
reconsider this.
