I think that the functionality requested here is useful, but I have a few remarks on the implementation. 1) stage1 shouldn't be doing any non *-dev passes at all, so limiting these here is less than ideal. 2) The ability to build without optimized packages is useful beyond bootstrapping and it also is not required for bootstrapping, so I'd rather see an orthogonal profile be used here. We already have a number of "no*" profile names (e.g. noudeb, nodoc, nobiarch, ...) and we could certainly expand that. 3) When limiting packages to certain profiles, debian/control should be updated to reflect that.
