Well a number of those embedded systems are in fact using Debian powerpc.
They do care.

The powermacs on the other hand I would think are hardly used anymore.
But that may just be my impression because I never cared about them in
the first place.   They weren't relevant to me. :)

I would not be surprised if there are more embedded freescale based
powerpc systems running debian out there than powermacs, but maybe I
am under estimating how many powermac users are still out there running
