No, please don't do that. This will almost make official and endorsed
the existence of rogue Debian packages from outside the project. FWIW,
I second the idea of a semi-stable distribution. This is a great
solution for potato-packages-needed-for-slink such as X, new Gnome and
so on. If I'm not mistaken a similar approach is taken by FreeBSD,
with their CURRENT, STABLE and RELEASE trees, right?

If you're not a developer and create packages, add them to Stephane's
list. But don't make it look like it's endorsed by the project.
