Bug#1034041: Should firmware-amd-graphics be automatically installed?

I'm implying that installation images produced by debian-cd (and available
on cdimage.d.o) should have firmware packages available and ready to deploy,
and should do that automatically; while netboot images (produced by the
debian-installer build system) don't, and won't be able to deploy firmware
packages unless tweaked beforehand via the procedure documented on that

And yes, I'm seeing similar “wanting while not actually needing” things with
some wireless Realtek hardware locally.
