No, Beta2 for S/390 is currently not broken as by a happy coincidence it 
does not use the kernel-latest packages. Instead it installs the -2 
kernel-image packages which are available. So, removing S/390 2.4 related 
kernel images from testing _will_ break Beta2.

Also, a few arches will still use 2.4 kernels in Beta 3. Removing 2.4 
support from D-I is a release goal for RC1 (see the minutes of the last 
d-i team meeting). Thus, the first moment that _all_ 2.4 related kernel 
packages can be removed from the archive will be after D-I RC1.
