As the de facto maintainer of console-data, I agree with this. I have to add that I unfortunately am entirely unable to implement in c-d something to have it grab keymap definitions from console-setup. Moreover, as both use different origins for the keymaps (c-s uses X.org keymaps while c-d provides the old-style Linux console keymaps, crafted by generation of Linux users over years....turning into a giant mess), it is very likely that many keymaps do not necessarily correspond. I would be delighted to obsolete console-data, as many people know. There are however several steps to achieve before that happens (one of those being d-i uing console-setup). An I indeed have no idea about how to turn console-data into a completely obsolete package and then offer users a decent transition to console-setup....
