No. I had a brief look once, but ran out of time.

Well, unless you want to upload cdebootstrap every week or two to adjust
its definition of the base system the way we used to have to upload
debootstrap, it needs to be taught how to get its definition of the base
system from the Priority fields in the archive. Other than that there
isn't anything particular blocking this, no.
