I think I know why they removed it.

NetworkManager has integrated pppoe support.(not really sure but I
still have the pppoe connection option in NetwokManager without the
rp-pppoe package)
rp-pppoe is needed only if you use the classic 'network' service.  
Which is sensible only on a server or some non-Desktop usage. I'm not sure how common is to use
the DVD or pppoe on servers. I guess there are plenty of usecases I
just can't think of any realistic ones where rp-pppoe is absolutely
So no need to include it on any Desktop orientated spin. I think it
will be good to be in the DVD it's a 234k rpm.
