I would personnally ask for it to be removed from the archive (assuming that's easily feasible witouht breakign anything else). A non-cooperative upstream wrt distribution and integration is a no-no and you'll waste too much valuable time in maintaining that package. Of course, being the arse that I am, I would *also* craft a mail to upstream mailing lists with a careful explanation about the reasons leading to the package being abandoned. Something like "Debian stops distributing Blender! as cooperation is impossible to make it fit within a distro". Coordinating this with Ubuntu would even have more power...
