Well, Debian developers do not really need them. But there are people
who do not develop Debian but develop other software _using_ Debian and
static linking is important for them (for example, if you have to submit
a job to a remote machine where you have no knowledge nor control over
what software is installed, you have no other choice than to link
everything (except maybe libc) statically into your application).
