We need to keep providing 1.0.2 for jessie-bpo due to security related
updates. As I pointed out, this release does not close any security
releated bugs (this is what upstream said) but it might be true for
further releases. So we can't just stop shipping 1.0.2 for Jessie-bpo.
The other way out would be to remove the current Jessie-bpo release of
openssl but as you saw in this thread there were people against it.

It is but I miss the point. I don't see the need to upload 1.1.0 to
Jessie-bpo. Remember Stretch has a bunch of packages updated for the new
ABI. So amount of possible users in Jessie is close to 0.  And the
openssl binary package breaks at least sendmail on top of my head.
