d-i has a plugin mechanism that allows you to create a specific udeb to
perform certain tasks (or to select certain software) during installation

It is also going to have (in a near future) a graphical interface, so creating
such a plugin will work for any type of installation (console, graphical,...)

I do not see your point. If demudi starts being part of debian, is part of
debian with all the consecuences. Same as any other -Junior, -Edu, -Desktop or
-Whatever project. All for our users. Whatever they want to do with debian.
