Removing the first list will break the second list, in particular, those
kernel-headers-2.6-subarch packages. So the magical short names for 'latest
kernel headers' will cease to work in unstable then.

Probably you'd want to make linux-2.6 hijack those packages first.
Alternatively, you're going to need to cope with bugreports about broken
kernel-headers-2.6-686 packages etc, or, you want us to remove them
altogether. The last option might be an upgrade problem for people, but I
don't have enough insight in that to make a call about it.

What do you want to do?
