Some packages get removed from the archive. They are reintroduces to the
archive some releases later, but they are missing in the releases
between. Can we reintroduce packages through -proposed instead of only
backporting them? 

I am asking this question, because libstdc++5 was removed from karmic
and it was recently reintroduces in maverick. Therefore the package
isn't in lucid, but many 3rd party application still depend on it.
