This would, IMO, conflict with Debian Policy 9.2.2, which is more
important for Debian than adapting to existing environments.

I see your issue, but that would better be solved with a possibility
to tell the installer to change these variables.

I am open to suggestions to cater for your needs while keeping policy
compliance inside Debian.
