well, using kernel-package has always been very bad anyway for
customization/derivatives (no proper source packages, no proper
integration, etc.), yet people keep using it out of habit.

we do not "support" that in live-build either (by including hacks to
workaround the deficiences in kernel-package), we do require the user to
have provided proper kernel packages, either by using them from the
archive or having them build from src:linux.

also, it's not hard to use the proper src:linux packages to build a
complete set of custom kernels, there's even kernel-handbook, so yes..
i'd say it's lack of user experience
