Not quite.  If there are things there that are in the official archives
too, they should be removed.  For instance, I had the
eeepc-acpi-scripts package moved yesterday.  We have some packages (like
atl1e, the ethernet module for models 901/1000(H)) that aren't (yet) in
Debian.  Also, the madwifi-eeepc modules packages are not (nor ever
will be) in the official archives.  Even though we no longer need the
patched source and can use the madwifi-source package in non-free to
build these modules, we still need to build debs of them and put them
at eeepc.debian.net so we can included them in the installer.

See http://eeepc.debian.net/pool

It is under consideration.

They are already.  However, we need to switch from using our
madwifi-eeepc-source to the madwifi-source in non-free.
