So the action plan is to scatter the code for freerunner support all around
d-i and not create a single package for freerunner related stuff?

This would be new partman check.d scripts (since /boot is required to be
ext2 and not ext2 or ext3, as Gaudenz pointed out earlier) and additions to
flash-kernel for image generation and uboot env modification.

We'll take this into consideration.
