The policy is to leave a stable distribution alone. Only security
related bugfixes find their way into stable. It is suppose to be a
distribution of packages which have proven to be "good". Introducing new
versions or new packages has the possibility of introduction of
bugs. There has been more then one new version of apt since stable was 
released. It was quite buggy at the beginning.
