Didn't debian-installer add support for adding backports to the sources.list
during installation? I vaguely remember having seen such an option which
could be checked during installation.
But I assume that one merely set up backports for the target system to
be used after the installation without the possibility to pull backports
packages during installation.
I only have a vague recollection, but ISTR net-retriever was only able
to perform installations from a single source, and I had to implement
merging Packages files from stable and stable-backports, which I don't
see in your proposed patch.
I agree, that would be a sensible thing to do first.
