The concern listed as: "rely on sponsors for hardware (mild concern)"

As I recall the argument went something along the lines of:

"Debian cannot replace the hardware; if any of the machines dies, we
need a sponsor to replace it.  If all of them dies and we cannot get
sponsored replacements, we cannot support the architecture any longer"

(My wording)
