I believe that is already the case.

If it doesn't find a ps/2 keyboard it will assume USB and wait until
such a device is attached. (Which really sucks when your PS/2 keyboard
isn't detected, but I digress...)

usbd is run by sysinstall when it starts and I believe the right stuff
is in the kernel to support mice as well, but I don't think it is 100%
integrated (eg with the mouse setup widget).

Note that these observations are based on -stable sources, so YMMV :)
