Actually there are three ftp-masters, not just one :-)

Yes, I talked to them earlier today and they agreed to bringing it back to avoid
these problems on users that have jessie-updates on their sources.list.
jessie-proposed-updates could also be brought back, though that's not enabled by
default upon installation so it should be less problematic if it stays removed
(though some people may have it so it wouldn't hurt to bring it back as well).
