It is on 'unreleased' suite due to a dpkg bug preventing to bootstrap
armhf with multistrap (uses multiple repositories for bootstrapping).
A fixed dpkg will be in 'unstable' suite as soon as its built as it
has already been uploaded a new version with the fix in it.

You might want to read the bug report as it will hint you on how you
can easily bootstrap with an alternative to debootstrap, multistrap:
