I could see (possibly) debian-keyring, but policy and the reference
should be essentially frozen with the release - if policy X is in effect
at release time, all packages that are targeted at that release must use
policy X, unless I'm mistaken.  The reference is, I suppose, less
frozen, but updates that address things like new packaging procedures
that are not present in stable would be problematic.  Also, since these
are all arch: all packages, it's not like they're a big deal to just
grab if you need a newer copy for some reason.
