For the Cyrillic languages it was asked by console-cyrillic.  And for 
the other non-Latin languages, well, they simply didn't have good 
support before console-setup.

This code was irrelevant, again because of console-cyrillic.  Most of 
the people are using the other layout and both layouts are as different 
one from another as qwerty and dvorak (people using one of them are 
unable to use the other).

People will be unable to preseed values that are not supported by the 
short list.  But I agree, if this question is used only by the udeb and 
not by the main package, then it is only a wishlist to support 
non-standard layouts.
