Sadly for you, I'm not of one those people.
Sadly for you, I tend to have confidence in Mike's judgement to decide
what packages can deserve such treatment.
For Security updates, I completely understand this is a problem, but
when somebody performs a backport, he has to maintain the backport
and work with the maintainers.
Mike is the maintainer of the package he intends to backport. At
least, I guess so.

By the way, I CC'ed you, but you can subscribe to this mailing list,
you will have a better view on what exactly is the backport process.
I'm not sure that Mike Hommey needs teaching about how to behave on
mailing list and how backports are working.
I thought developers/maintainers of Debian fight less than Gentoo's.
