The cross-tools (apart from binutils) have missed Jessie. The release
team are not going to change their minds about that. The issue of this
bug was not the only problem there: missing work on britney and
wanna-build means they wouldn't have migrated in time independently of
this issue and I was not able to persuade the release team to make a
special exception on 'release goal' grounds.
