That would be wonderful to ease the transition in the LTS phase of Jessie.

If done, it might be relevant to rephrase [2] to explain it exists for
compatibility reasons but it's left empty.

I personally don't use proposed-updates on the kind of server that
stay alive long enough to reach LTS, but why not bring it back too in
order to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Also, for next time, this could be relevant to add this requirement to
keep -updates/ (and maybe -proposed-updates/) to some kind of
procedure while transitioning the release in its LTS stage. I found
the documentation about contributing to LTS as a developer [1] but not
how you handle internally the transition form the standard support
team to the LTS support team. But I guess there exists some kind of
procedure for it. For the future of transitioning Stretch from
standard support to LTS, this could be valuable so the transition
could be perfectly smooth ?
