Why not just ask the user if d-i should mark the partition as bootable?
I'm not sure if this is easily implementable, but if it is, I think this
would be user friendlier than the proposed solution.

E.g something along the lines of: Your boot partition is not marked as
bootable. Should it be marked as bootable?
