AFAI can tell, anybody can host an archive of packages built from stable 
sources for a scc or unofficial port. And - if I read the conditions on 
becoming a fully supported Debian arch right - then having security support 
for an external pool of this arch is a good indicator that it should be a 
fully supported stable release (amongst other things).

If on the other hand nobody can be found to recompile packages after DSAs are 
released for this arch, I believe the arch shouldn't be released for Debian 
as stable.
