Hmm, you stated that wireless-regdb-udeb should be included in most installer
builds now.
That goes down to commit
which adds wireless-regdb-udeb to netboot images.

Yes, that works fine, using a netboot image, I am NOT asked to provide
firmware for regulatory.db file, because it's already included in the d-i

However, that's only true for netboot images!

My wireless card (on an IBM Thinkpad T60) is also usable with DVD/CD netinst images 
(so related kernel modules seem to be included in those images; I have explicitly
tested that with said images on that T60), so probably wireless-regdb-udeb should just 
be added to all Linux d-i images?
