As Joey pointed out, just because squashfs exists doesn't mean that
people no longer use cramfs.
Can you give a good reason for removing cramfsprogs? Unless I hear a
*good* reason, I object to this change.
As you point out, the mips d-i images use cramfs and I have no plans
to change this at this point.
