Would this prevent the conglomerate module packages from building on
hppa? If so, wouldn't that break d-i (e.g., loop-aes for crypt
partitions?)

Also - what makes the ABI of the hppa kernel any less stable than the
other architectures?

Yes.

The word of the hppa "maintainer".

Ok, then we should revert to managing the ABI files, right? Anyone
object to that?

Yeah, but the referenced justification is invalid - this isn't only
for proprietary modules and risks breaking modules required by d-i.
