They shouldn't be marked as translatable. Indeed the long description
will never be used.

The 2nd template should be translatable and is a good candidate for my
proposed "sublevel 6" that wouldn't be counted in statistics (at least
those that I track)

I propose you use sublevel 6.

Then update the patch...then propose a patch to the D-I documentation
(the part about preseeding as any preseedable value should be
documented there).

I don't think an NMU for a -boot maintained package is the best
solution. Once the patch is OK for the D-I team, then we can commit it
and upload the package.
