I can see that that's the way it has been done until now. So probably
this is the way the d-i team wants this to be done. But to me it seems
a bit strange to scatter all these device dependant thing into all
these different packages (partman, flash-kernel, ...). I would prefer
a design where we have one device specific udeb which contains all the
helper scripts that plug into the infrastructure provided by the base
d-i components like partman. Like this we could only include them in
those images that actually use them.

IIRC this only ensures that /boot is ext2 or ext3. But uboot seems to
be unable to boot from an unclean ext3 partition. But unclean
shutdowns may be quite common on phonse :-(. Therefore I would prefer
a solution where /boot is on ext2 only.
