No, it's perfectly sensible from the Debian's POV. (And from the user's
perspective, too, if she's interested in having a usable installer.)

The usual "two packages that are somewhat useful" applicant (as I'd be myself,
except that I don't bother at the moment), may be nice to have to debian. But
people getting the installer into shape are those that Debian desperately wants
and neeeds.
