No, no problem there. It's even doable, albeit not very well documented
and slightly odd to make a standlone program that uses debconf for all
of its user interaction. Examples of such a program are apt-setup and
tzsetup in base-config. This would probably be something similar.

Since I've sadly not even read the script yet, this probably won't be
from me.
