So yes, it affects apt-setup only.
In 50mirror: it would affect the code that decides whether or not to
offer a network mirror, and the installer priority setting. Appending
extra details on "not_complete" will change things here.
In 41cdset: it won't change anything here, we'll still bail out as
In 10apt-cdrom-setup: again, appending to "not_complete" will break
the logic there that turns off the CD source for netinst images.
I think you need to make some changes in d-i too before I'm happy to
take this patch, sorry.
