Skipping base-install and others at stage 5

Hello everbody:

I am using network preseeding to fully automate cluster and
desktop Debian installations, but I would like to speed up installations
for identical nodes by using rsync instead of apt so as I can install
an image from the server previously done with apt. 
I've already done it, and it works well, but the problem is
that some time is wasted by performing 'base-installer' and 
'pkgsel' modules at stage 5 that are not needed at all.

So, I would like to skip at stage 5, the following modules:

- base-installer
- user-setup
- apt-setup
- pkgsel

Is that possible?. If positive, could someone give me some
basic ideas to achieve it? (debconf, hooks, etc??). Any suggestion
will be welcomed.
