Even if Clint formed a fixed conviction that MySQL could be dropped, as long as other people were willing to maintain it, his conviction would come to nothing. He said as much in http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/pkg-mysql-maint/2012-February/003938.html . If Clint (and anyone who feels srongly enough) is going to discuss the situation regarding Oracle, MySQL, Pecona, MariaDB and so on than that is surely a good thing. And the original comment came up at a time when in pactice noone was maintaining MySQL in Debian, so was entirely fair. It is to avoid that situation arising again that I am trying to document how the community including can work together on MySQL and with Ubuntu in the Debian Wiki: http://wiki.debian.org/Teams/MySQL.
