I talked to Adrian Bunk on IRC yesterday who has adopted all the old driver
packages and reuploaded them and he said, he will look into adopting the sunffb
driver package as well.

The package wasn't rejected, it was just Julien Christau who didn't want to 
it under the umbrella of the Xorg package maintainers team. There is no policy 
Debian that disallows "unimportant" packages.
