That warning sounds good, but perhaps it should be there
whether you are using eatmydata or not.
I would not like to finish an interrupted partial installation too.

As others have said, doing that thing that eatmydata disables
just at the end before d-i reports
the end of the installation procedure,
there should not be more risk using eatmydata than not using it.

As this proposal sounds like a very good idea, and since
it doesn't look to difficult to be done now, before the release of
Debian 11, the Debian-Boot team should do this.

What do we need to do to push this proposal to d-i for Debian 11?
