I've just taken a look at the source for parted (Debian unstable version), 
and the problem seems fairly obvious.

In libparted/labels/dasd.c there's a function dasd_read() which very 
clearly only supports LDL and CDL formatted dasds.

So someone will need to implement CMS support in parted before Debian 
Installer can be made to support CMS formatted mini disks.
I'm cloning this BR to parted so that its maintainers can take a look at 
that, but probably someone from the s390 community will need to provide a 
patch to the upstream developers.
