I consider storm as a sort of debian. And if there are no debian-tools, we
can concentrate on, we need to switch, or leave them out and stick with
dselect and apt only.

But anyway, it's right what you're saying.
As a last reason to drop stormpkg: There are no sources on
ftp.stormix.com, at least not in their potato tree where they should
remain. No sources, no include.
This issue is finished so far now, I would say, it would take to long to
contact stormix and ask them for sources (they must have changed from
slink to potato, as far as I've seen it yesterday).
