since you are working on a new installer and changing some things about what
installation image is and how release is made, I would like to propose/discuss
the following change.

What about adding option DDB to the kernels booted from installation images?
While adding DDB to installed kernels (GENERIC) would/could be a POLA violation
and a potential security issue, having DDB in installation kernels would help a
lot with debugging issues where users can't even get installation system to boot.

Thank you for your work!
