Are you talking about install time or run time?

I suppose you could be provided with a list of WM's at install time but 
then where would they draw the line as to what choices of packages to load.

At run time it doesn't a lot of sense to interrogate the Debian package 
site (and then installing your new choice) every time you start gdm so 
choosing among the WM's installed on your system makes a lot of sense.
