Why do you use the term "port" here? "Debian" defines a base structure
for an complete operating system. "Debian GNU/Hurd" implies beeing part
of Debian, so it has to fit into Debian's structure (defined by the
Policy). When you need some modifiecation of the standard, define it in
the Debian policy as Hurd-specific stuff.

I still cannot see what does make you think Hurd were a completely
different OS. It may have another kernel, but Unix-like concepts in
userspace and some arch-specific packages. It is Debian.

And you seem to be keen on claiming your own opinion to be the ultimate
truth. Go away.
