One of the use cases for the gui installer aka g-i was the need to
address installation in certain non-english languages. Now folks who
speak some popular indic languages can install Debian in their native
language. woot!  And some of the installer question were removed and
made into defaults so that users didn't need to answer un-needed
question. As you found out, a vast imporvment was made to the process
when compared to boot-floppies :-) As for the progress bar, I'm sure a
wishlist bug might help there.
