The best (or less worse) we can do is in partman-auto and have reasonable decent sizes there. Everything else is too dependent on user choices (or even the current *installation languages*, or the architecture...or the installation media... that imagining we'll find a solution to warn users when they create too small partitions....for something they don't even have chosen already (what to install) is just science-fiction.
