true, though the current state in "less releasable than it could be".
Even incomplete, I consider having it in to be better than having the
totally wrong jessie artwork in stretch for these two reasons:

a.) it will expose what is incomplete
b.) it will expose the new code and other changes in 9.0.0 to more people
    running unstable+stretch, hardly anyone uses packages in

(and there's also c.) debian-blends which want to prepare their artwort
for stretch might have only tests setups for packages from
unstable+testing but not for stretch. This is certainly true for Debian
Edu and debian-edu-artwork… we basically need the changes in unstable to
test them without rebuilding our test setups, which so far do not
include experimental…)
