Well, you asked for thoughts... :-) :

I never do X configuration from the installer (and I always recomend
to other not to do it either), since I think it's just too often
something with X probing/configuration freezes the system or goes
wrong otherwise.  Then you have to restart the install of the entire
OS, so I think it's much better to configure X after the main OS

In short: Yes, please just nuke it :-).
