So I've spent a good part of today trying to fix that problem.

The path I've picked was to try to in-Debian build the Inetc plugin, and then 
use that in win32-loader to download d-i assets over https securely. 
Unfortunately, that didn't work out well enough:
* the inetc plugin is not properly licensed, but assuming it is under Zlib …
* it (kinda-)builds under Debian,
* it supports the NSIS 3.0 API,
* but I couldn't manage to make it work in win32-loader, as I was having 
errors such as "Dialog error (1812)", and then "Connection error", which I 
couldn't debug.

Anyway. Here's the nsis-plugin-inetc packaging:

As for the bug at hand, I will upload a new win32-loader targetted at stretch 
that doesn't permit dailies or alternative architectures' download (as they 
later fail anyway), and get that into stretch.
