I suggest release goal: no package in etch to be shipped using debmake, but 
I also suggest still shipping a 'final' version of debmake with etch, 
containing a big fat warning in its description that its an obsolete 
package.  Reason: some people may have been doing private packages with 
debmake (is this realistic? no idea. If not, forget this.), and this would 
probably be the best communication channel to those users.  (Yes, we can't 
force them to look at the updated package description...)

Alternatively: isn't there a list of removed packages in the release notes? 
(Same problem...)
