Uhmmm, sorry for the confusion. I never realised that it was removed.
(I think I even somehow ignored one of your hints about this fact in the
past because I was somehow sure that it was in ...)
I can only tell for sure that sitplus was in testing at the point of
creation of the Debian Med metapackages because it is recommended in
med-rehabilitation. This was in April and we did not recieved any RC
bug against sitplus so I did not checked - perhaps it was just removed
because of the missing Dependency.
BTW, I did not recieved any response to my "Blends metapackages upload
*after* freeze" mail. The Recommends in med-rehabilitation would be
fixed by a new upload - but in principle it would be prefered to have
sitplus inside wheezy if possible.

It lists libpoco-dev as Build-Depends and #680798 is exactly about the
lack of the required Build-Depends.
