Well, I think it's obvious that Debian don't want to support a m68k port
anymore. It started with the Vancouver Proposal, continued with excluding
from testing migration scripts and to other actions (or not-actions). 

I think m68k is just the first arch to be dropped by Debian. Look at ubuntu
and see how fast PPC was dropped after Apples switch...
