Fedora has a boot option that forces the installer to recognize a drive as GPT, can this be added to Debian?

There is a boot option in Fedora 'inst.gpt' which forces the Fedora 26 Anaconda installer to recognize a drive as a GPT drive for the purposes of the Anaconda installer setting up the drive with a GPT partition table.


Could this somehow be added to the Debian installer as this option is useful for anyone who wants to set up a drive on a BIOS-based system as a GPT drive without having to manually partition the drive after manually setting it as GPT? It makes the automated drive setup (e.g. encrypted LVM setup) very easy and painless.

I didn't realise people would get so stuck on names, by the 2nd email it should have been obvious I meant this about Debian not Ubuntu.
