IMHO, you'll have a hard time getting such a field into policy. Not so
hard a time getting it into debconf, but I would still prefer to
consider other alternatives. If we had some way to set the order
dpkg-preconfigure used to run scripts, when we could just put a config
script first that did the preseeding, for example.
