It's irrelevant. The Hurd isn't a popular system, few people actually
use it, there are probably a lot more Debian mirrors than machines
using them with hurd-i386 packages. It's simply not worth it.

I'm not a Debian contributor but, as a Hurd contributor, it seems
perfectly appropriate that the Hurd gets removed from there. On the
other hand, I'm ready to provide resources so that things work
nicely from debian-ports.
