As I read the original proposal, it was actually only a preseeded option --
if you preseeded netcfg/choose_interface to have a VLANesque name (eth0.X),
then vconfig would be invoked, otherwise no such luck.  Personally, I think
that if you're going to go to the trouble of implementing it, a (low)
priority question would be worth the hassle, but personally I don't see why
anyone would ever want to install over a *tagged* VLAN, myself.  But then, I
don't work in a fortress of intransigence, and I get to manage my own
network ports.
