Isn't that the user's decision, when they decided to adopt a tool that requires this deployment model? Or, if they're not clear about what adopting this tool means, I agree that isn't in their interest for them to see that there's a debian package and be fooled into thinking it doesn't require this deployment model just because there's a zombie package in debian stable which will be essentially unsupported and will completely cut them off from the tool's community. Putting it into debian provides zero benefit, and they could get the same "stability" guarantee by just keeping a copy of a two year old third party .deb and never updating it.
