I think the major difference between volatile and backports.org should
be that volatile makes also "releases", and between two releases, only
security fixes are done on the archive. This gives the benefit that it
doesn't require that often administrator action (and perhaps an staging
area where the newest things are in, and that is moved to stable once
everything is done).
