As none of it is security issue, you would have to speak with stable
release team about the updates. How big are the patches (diffstat?).

That would be nightmare security-wise. There is are rule: package has
to be in testing to go to backports, you would have to provide
security for backported package. And I guess you don't want that as
much as I do :).
