Netinst also contains all the relevant packages. Only netboot and
businesscard images absoluetly require a mirror.

With netinst you can go back on the mirror selection and install without
a mirror. Then later you can configure apt yourself and run tasksel
manually. That then even works with the current gpg key of Release.gpg
being unknown to the old images.
