Futhermore, oldstable information is very useful for the first months
after the next stable release. (The etch release was when I added
oldstable to DDPO.)

I'd opt to keep oldstable in the PTS as it would be impractical to
re-add it after each release and then drop it again once security
support is discontinued.
