no, the report exactly looks like this *because* of this:

what's missing now is a bug against ftp.debian.org asking for the removal of 
the binaries from sid, which are not build by the -3 anymore. 

*then*, -3 can migrate to jessie and those binaries will vanish 

and the stuff in the cruft report breaks because of this.

yup, I will base the wheezy upload on this.
