 Technically, Debian can run on Hyper-V without hyperv-daemons package.
 But it lucks important features like volume shadow copy service (VSS).

 And, about hyperv-daemons package is same situation as Azure, if Microsoft
 doesn't officially endorse Debian as support platform because of not
 providing hyperv-daemons package, many managers/clients doesn't allow
 to use Debian as a part of their systems due to luck of support that 
 compared to other distributions.

 It's sad, really sad.

 So I thinks we should care such situations, and try to improve it by adding
 hyperv-daemons package to stable (it means for production system).

 Adding hyperv-daemon package to stable is

 - it can solve political issue (support/endorse)
 - it improve managing VMs backup operation (at least)
 - no harm for existing packages/systems
 - low cost to backport it

 Please think about it.

 If we can add it to stable, then I'll ask microsoft to update their documents

 Great :)
