No, there is no such dictionary. Sadly, documenting all possible
presseding options really lacks a dedicated effort. There was one, in
the past, when the D-I team was much bigger, and, still the
Installation Guiide does document the most important options, but
those that have been "recently" added ("recentlly" means "last years")
shoudl be added there.

I got the template extract....from the package source itself (pkgsel
package, here).
