I understand that all source will be kept in archive as long as the
udebs exist. They just aren't listed in the main/source/Sources file
anymore. Right?

Could we create a main/debian-installer/source/Sources file that
contains all udeb building sources in the version that the udebs have?
Those would often be duplicates to the main/source/Sources file except
for those where the version differs.

Alternatively the main/source/Sources file could list both versions of
the source.

That is essential and should already be effective. It works for debs
