Note as well that having backports enabled by default has already been
requested (http://bugs.debian.org/691651) and discussed (on debian-devel in
March), and that there was no critical objection.  So if we set up the bar too
high in terms of reducing the differences between cloud images and standard
installations, we will lock ourselves in a situation where we do not enable
backports because there is no momentum on #691651, and where we can not give
momentum to #691651 because we do not enable backports for ourselves.

I propose to move forward and enable backports by default.
