Dependencies are not guaranteed, and there are often to usually multiple
versions of packages in unstable (not just on Debian-Ports), which makes
debootstrap choke every so often. You can only reliably debootstrap both
stable and testing (and, of course, oldstable).

Nah, nothing important, just binutils and eglibc…

After the unfreeze, I guess.

Nope. Nothing guarantees unstable will stay installable without
unreleased. But (once I get time), I have some ideas for d-i to
work with Debian-Ports ☺
