This could mean losing D-I support for hppa. The whole D-I infrastructure is built around having a usable testing. If hppa abandons stable releases and thus is no longer included in testing, I personally will immediately stop investing any energy in hppa D-I and may argue for dropping it, especially if nobody else takes any interest. I also doubt that Debian in general will allow architectures to only have a presence in unstable. It's much more likely that hppa would at some point be relegated to http://www.debian-ports.org/.
