This is not true in the real world.

It's not documented yet, so it's an issue as well.
Also, from a marketing POV (/me ducks), it's a complete different story
whether you say "you can build live-cds with tools from Debian stable now"
or "there are some backports, which might change anytime, which allow you to
build live-cds of Debian stable." Live-CDs are nothing new, that we (almost)
have a tool in stable that allows this, is.

While I appreciate this, I dont think this is a reason not to have
live-package in etch.

No, not yet.
