This bug was fixed in the package console-setup - 1.70ubuntu2

console-setup (1.70ubuntu2) precise; urgency=low

  * Drop the simplified keyboard-configuration/xkb-keymap question; it
    breaks existing preseeding, might confuse Ubiquity, and people are
    already used to the layout/variant questions in Ubuntu (LP: #894187).
