And keep the installer unable to do things as widespread as WPA?
And keep it unable to generate a proper configuration for laptops?

How many systems are needing WLAN for installation?
Servers don’t have WLAN, I never have seen a Desktop with WLAN (neither in companies nor private PCs). I only have WLAN in laptops. And since I only have Intel WiFi, d-i never was able to use it because I need non-free firmware (no fault of d-i, mind you, non-free is non-free, which is a part why I don’t like WLAN).

But if you think that is so important, put N-M in d-i and activate it if the user wants to use WLAN for installation. But don’t install it if the user doesn’t explicitly ask for it.

Shade and sweet water!
