Sorry, not enforceable - A package migrates through unstable/testing
only for a regular cycle. As time passes, testing grows more and more
incompatible with stable (i.e., did you notice we are still in the
middle of a C++ migration which horribly breaks the world and the
surrounding regions?)

Any new upstream verison needs to be compiled specifically for stable,
and pushed through proposed-updates or something similar.
