I however fail to preseed this and still let the user choose.  We'd need
this for accessibility, to enable MATE by default when braille or speech
was used.  I have tried the following:

debconf-set-selections mate-preseed.cfg

where mate-pressed.cfg contains:

tasksel tasksel/first multiselect standard, mate-desktop, print-server
tasksel tasksel/first seen false
tasksel tasksel/tasks multiselect standard, mate-desktop, print-server
tasksel tasksel/tasks seen false
tasksel tasksel/desktop mate
tasksel tasksel/desktop seen false

After that, debconf-get tasksel/first etc. return the expected values.
But when arriving on the task choices, gnome is still the default... and
debconf-get tasksel/first etc. have become empty.  I guess I am missing
