No, they are not.  See
for an explanation.

    Current consensus among the Debian GNOME people seems
to be to release Sarge with GNOME 2.2.  That is why several
libraries (including atk and at-spi) are not kept at their
latest versions in unstable currently.  I attempted several
times to convince the atk/at-spi maintainer to except those packages
from that rule since they are very important infrastructure for
Accessibility-related software.  However, I did not appear
to succeed yet.  It currently looks like as if we
will release Debian Sarge with at-spi 1.1.9 and gnopernicus 0.3.4.
