Or more precisely: There are people who are not interested to let
anonscm.debian.org go anywhere. On the other hand there are lots of
people (including me) who consider this totally insane since this just
continues the "Update Vcs-fields every second year" cycle and I really
hope that this insanity will be broken by simply pointing anonscm to
salsa in general once the migration is done.

IMHO alowing salsa a valid Vcs field for the moment makes sense but
rather deprecate it once sanity has won over insanity. :-P
