"second class" is always discriminating, regardless of applied to
what. "nrp" would be another useless TLA in the Debian dictionary.
"ports" just means what scc was meant for: Debian has been ported
these architectures, but it's not the mainline releases. (The BSD
"ports" use the same name for non-mainline packages, so that fits.)
