I did not mean that we should not introduce sa3 in volatile, but definitelly,
if the major upgrade on the release cycle of volatile include all the
applications which have a dependency on each other and it is a closed update,
i do not see why not.

a person upgrading volatile should "apt-get volatile-upgrade" the whole
repository, not just parts of it.

If not, is a backports issue, not a closed release set.
