Debian-installer is intended more as something third parties can use to
install Debian, than something for Debian itself?

If you meant PGI, then you're wrong.  PGI has never been intended as
something for use "more" by third parties.

It is simply intended as an alternative to the existing Debian
installation system for the architectures where it works.

If it were intended mostly for third party use it never would have been
released to Debian unstable.
