I'm not part of the buildd team, but yes, packages for wheezy-backports
will definitely built in a wheezy chroot. About the kernel of the host
system I don't know. I guess they stick to the stable kernels, and the
buildd hosts will be upgraded from squeeze to wheezy at some point after
the release of wheezy. That though is a question you should address the
buildd admins and/or DSA with (DSA probably will only install wheezy
kernels (through squeeze-backports) on the call of the buildd team in
case they request it).

The wheezy-backports will be produced on regular buildds, so if you
consider those an issue you will have to get it fixed in a different
way, this announce won't change anything in this respect (besides the
obvious wheezy chroot for the wheezy-backports builds).
In general, you can try to convince the regular maintainers of the
packages whether they would be interested to offer the backports,
usually it's a small effort for them because they are already familiar
with the package (and might be aware of special cases to look after).
Enjoy, and thanks for your feedback!
