It was discussed extensively when the functionality was implemented.
Most people were happy to at last have the option in *some* form, even
though far from optional. It is no more than a logical extension of the
pre-existing option to preseed the desktop choice using desktop=X.
I'll be happy to remove all the "gunk" once there is a proper
implementation of desktop selection.
EOD for me.
