The usplash package has been superseded by plymouth. Plymouth is now a
required component, and conflicts with usplash, so it can not even be
installed in Ubuntu now. Please drop it from the archive.

I agree with you that this is an obsolete package, but you still have one package that rdepends on it and is still installable right now: tuxonice-userui.
It seems that Debian has already removed it, so it seems logical to do the same in Ubuntu.

Subscribing archive admin to get their opinion.

Hrm... yes, it looks like debian has already dropped usplash, but not tuxonice-userui, which is no longer buildable without usplash. Looks like that should be removed as well.
