I find it interresting that you are re-enacting the great firmware wares
of 2008, which could only be resolved after a lot of blood was spilled.
If -backports is not stable, neither is -security, -updates or
-proposed-updates. This also means that d-i does not install stable.
Or that we have stable that can run on modern hardware (yes, my current
desktop does not even remotely work with 3.16).
Anyway, lets not forget: Our priorities are our users and free software.
