I did this with all php and libjs packages and now I only have these remaining 
at wheezy-backports:

mondschein:~> apt-show-versions | grep backport | cut -d"/" -f1

So seems I am set for now as long as I ignore this systemd related packages 
apt-get wants to install maybe due to them being set as essential, I did not 
yet verify this.

Heck, maybe I just upgrade the box completely to Jessie in one of the next 

However, unless Owncloud upstream provides security updates for version 7 for 
a long enough time, in some way switching to a newer version of Owncloud 
during Jessie lifetime may as well be needed. But well, it could be handled 
similarily to iceweasel probably.
