Imho, the policy should also contain information about how to handle
oldstable-bpo. IIrc, the following rules have been agreed upon:

 * The version (if any) in ${release + 1}-bpo has to be higher than in
   ${release}-bpo. The new version numbers will do just that.

 * If a package in ${release}-bpo has a higher version number than the
   package in ${release + 1}, the package has to be uploaded to ${release +
   1}-bpo as well. This way an upgrade path from ${release} + ${release}-bpo
   to ${release + 1} + ${release + 1}-bpo is available.
