I fear that they need to be kept since otherwise a lot of installation
media that are currently used would get suddenly wrecked.

I guess that it may be a good idea to implement something like a
public morgue for these udebs for etch and its successors in that the
installer is able to look into a second (morgue) directory for the
udebs it requires for installation if they can't be fetched from the
main source (main archive).
