The problem might come when some package has a strict dependency on the
other package, meaning requires some =version, which might have not
ported yet but have just previous version. Under current level of
activity it would be really hard I think to keep up with unstable (or
even testing) main debian trunk. So I thought that it would be better to
port all basic packages from the frozen base first and then start
maintaining it as well as the rest of packages.
Well. because interest exists, I will create recent unstable debian
mirror in a couple of days (just need to resolve some problems first
with machine I want to host it on)

Please keep up posted how it will come out :-)

Again - do we have enough strength to catch up? It is just my opinion
and might be wrong.
