I don't see any good meanings to use "removed" dist.
Because the reason why package was removed is different with each other.
So I can see it makes more sense to use pool dist already provided by
snapshot.debian.net and specify packages you need.
To make apt line for the entire snapshot archive, it will need more disk
space, and I want to use disk space for deb,dsc,tar.gz,diff.gz, not
Packages and Sources.
