Yes, I am fully aware of that. We have the same problem on all other
ports like hppa which require a bootloader which cannot be uploaded
to unstable when it's only available on a ports architecture.

SILO was removed because packages which do not build any binary packages
in unstable are automatically removed from unstable within a few hours.

I discussed this issue with Aurelien at DebConf 15.
