The following packages still are in the old package format:

Packages in main
  deliver_2.1.12-2.deb		orphaned
  dld_3.2.6-3.deb		orphaned
  figlet_2.1.1-3.deb		orphaned
  j1_7-7.deb			orphaned
  mh-papers_6.8.3-1.deb		orphaned
  rc_1.4-2.deb			orphaned
  sam_4.3-1.deb			orphaned
  sox_11gamma-1.deb		orphaned
  term_2.3.5-5.deb		orphaned
  xcompat_3.1.2-4.deb		orphaned

Packages in non-free
  dmalloc_3.1.2-1.deb		orphaned
  giftrans_1.12-6.deb		orphaned
  witalian_1.0-3.deb		orphaned
  wnorwegian_1.0-3.deb		orphaned

Many of them are listed as orphaned in the "Work Needing and Prospective
Packages" list, but some of them are not. Time for a mantainer-ping?

(the last dpkg versions don't recognize the old-format packages, so
a dselect install run over a local mirror of unstable will always fail 
in the main section, thus skipping contrib and non-free).
