I concur that proving backports for games sounds like a sane thing to do,
however I think that mentioning that in the release announcement is the
wrong place, since that should announce new features and interesting stuff,
not mention future intentions.

Therefore I think that the Debian Project News would be the better place
for announcing availability / discussion around backports for games.
