Yes, I  strongly support  the  idea of working   on the  d-i, possibly
adding it pieces from other installers, as pickaxe.

IMHO the new d-i has a really good design and it's completely modular,
which is a  bless  for  CDD. I  just finished   to develop   a  custom
installable  ISO  for  AGNULA/DeMuDi based on  the  d-i,  and it works
pretty well.

People on  debian-boot are doing a great   job, if you  have new ideas
please just join them and try to work directly inside the d-i.
