it is included in my post.

 - If a removed architecture later can prove it will be able to make the
   next official release, it can be re-included into the official
   archive. This step additionally needs the acceptance of the Security,
   the Release and the Debian Admin Team. (It needs security
   autobuilders, porter machines, etc.)

The same as we offer every other architecture going out or trying to
come in.
