First of all, thank you very much for this excellent summary.

How about the following idea: In case we are not able to find a
technical solution for this for the Debian Stretch release, we encourage
cloud providers to offer two images, one with backports enabled and one
without backports? For the backports-enabled images we then could ask
them to add a disclaimer explaining the technical problem.

This way users have the choice if they want Debian Stretch including
backports enabled or if the want to choose 'plain Debian Stretch'.
