Actually, I disagree with you on this point. It's the good place to put
backports packages, if we ever do it. Because this is the place where
users would look first, and because this place is handled with more
manpowers that we would have, and it handles security alerts, etc…
And we don't need to get in touch with any maintainer to do backports.

It's not as difficult and bad as you imagine it is. :-)
