Ummm no. It's not needed for the base system. It may be included
in further versions of base systems.

You can always create your own base system.
Untar the base system into a directory:
tar xvpfz base2_0.tgz
dpkg --root=/where/your/files/are -i apt*.deb
Tar it again. If you need to split it, pick the floppy_split program
from the boot-floppies source archive.
