I'd go a little further and instate a general rule such as:
- All subdomains of debian.org should exist in debian.net and point to
  the same location.
- All domains external to debian.org but providing official support
  should also be accessible from a subdomain of debian.org.
- All external domains providing unofficial support should also be
  accessible from a subdomain of debian.net.

That would also be the occasion to discuss about the status of
backports, buildd.net and others.
