Sure, no need to hurry. Does the affect d-i (the images) directly? Or do
you just want to delay the changes in the Packages index to be able to
compare installations of Stretch before/after the changes?

I'll also wait with changes to "init", but that needs further input from
systemd/sysvinit maintainers anyway[1].

And one more question: how does d-i make use of the "tasksel{,-data}"
and "dmidecode"? These are also installed in the target as "important",
but I'm wonder if they are just used as part of the installation
process. I've refrained from changing their priority to avoid breakage.
