We can't really say how fast wine will develop, but for the next
cycle, the plan is to carry the stable release as the wine package
(either 1.4 or 1.6) and the development version as wine-unstable
(either 1.5 or 1.7), with the ideal of getting them both in testing.

I'm not really sure what you're asking, but any package in testing can
be backported to stable.  And there are certain cases where unstable
packages can be backported.

Package versions in testing are always greater than or equal to those in stable.
