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/.
