Seems reasonable to me.

Does 'language' here mean UI language + input language + keymap/keyboard, etc.?
I.e., is this just moving the 'localization' screen before the main hub &
spoke UI?

Well, what is the purpose here? To only ask what's required for
installation, and do all other configuration post-install? Would this other
configuration be at firstboot/InitialSetup, or after installation but before
rebooting?

Given that an installation can take a reasonably large amount of time, many
people like the idea of fire&forget - once you hit the 'Install' button, it
does not ask for anything else until it's finished entirely and is usable.
If we go down that road, then we would want more configuration done
pre-install, even if it's not necessarily needed for install.
