Not that I'm official in any way but I thought that's obvious from the
criteria for lenny-backports (and all prior backport suits).

So packages which get backported should in general be part of the next
release. That is only very likely the case when they manage to migrate
to testing. So how would you measure that for a squeeze backports repository
starting before a wheezy testing? Things like 'I got through new with it and
it's in experimental now' is not something I would consider to be sane in that

A package which got removed from testing because of whatever
reasons is not something I would consider to be a good automatic
candidate for a subsequent stable release as well.

And I don't know much, but I do know this:
