OK, I'm going to take that back.

Julien pointed out on IRC that iSCSI is much more common than I initially
thought, as opposed to multipath or nbd (which indeed are optional), and
Colin that hiding iSCSI wouldn't be a huge service to our users.

Therefore it looks to me that standard is the proper value.

If we want to avoid showing untranslated material in a default install, it
might be sufficient to make sure the partman-iscsi/text/configure_iscsi
string is translated in all languages first; and translators can keep up
with the other strings of this package whenever they have time?

I understand extra strings are no fun. But the freeze is still a few weeks
away, and l10n-{only,mostly} uploads/migrations are very much possible;
remember the bulk of l10n changes I reviewed/approved during the wheezy
freeze. ;)
