That's not quite what happened. Instead, the cryptsetup-initramfs wasn't
available to start with:

    Apr 30 16:11:44 in-target: Package cryptsetup-initramfs is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    Apr 30 16:11:44 in-target: E: Package 'cryptsetup-initramfs' has no installation candidate

Later on, cryptsetup got removed along with a bunch of live packages.

Presumably, if cryptsetup-initramfs had been successfully installed, it
would have kept cryptsetup around.

Again, I'm not familiar with the live environment, it'd be great if some
with some knowledge about the way it operates and/or the way it's built
could comment on this.

Adding debian-live@ for now, but might be debian-cd@ territory…

Very wild guess: Could cryptsetup-initramfs be missing from live-setup?
