You could actually try to convince the iptables maintainer to allow users 
to set this kind of "deny all" setup in postinst through debconf. It should 
be rather easy to do actually, since you just have to execute an iptables 
script (similar to what you provided) and run '/etc/init.d/iptables save'.
I tried to do this a while back without any success (see #212692).

There are a lot of ways to setup a firewall in Debian [1] I rather not have 
yet another package to do this.
