The contribute instructions (in my reading) explicitly allow this:
"Of course there are some exceptions: Security updates. If your
package had a security update you can upload a new backport even if
its not yet in testing."
Obviously care neds to be taken to not break the upgrade path / version
I'd base the wheezy-backports upload on the jessie-security
version, but you'd know best what to base your upload on.
