I think this is the absolute wrong way to go, fwiw.  Making things
significantly different in the installer means more maintenance
overhead, instead of improving things for everyone and sharing the
maintenance burden, if this was happening upstream.  The way to present
this information in c-s can be improved, some xk-c strings might need to
be changed to make them easier to understand, some variants might need
to be hidden because they're mostly unused, etc, and sure, that's a lot
of work, but there's no reason this should be specific to d-i IMO.
