That seems fine, but please note that most of the changes necessary to
remove gjs from s390x happened some time ago (in late September and early
October); so if you are able to make mozjs60 work correctly on s390x,
we will likely already need to revert some changes to bring it back.
If the d-i maintainers remove gjs/GNOME Shell on s390x and then you
subsequently get mozjs60 working on s390x, the list of changes to revert
to bring back gjs/s390x just becomes slightly longer.
I'm also not at all sure whether the GNOME Shell environment works
on s390x hardware, which as far as I know doesn't have either a
Mesa-supported GPU or the llvmpipe driver - if it never worked then we
aren't actually losing anything. Presumably s390 porters would have a
better idea of what works and what doesn't.
