Did you talk with Aurelien (maintainer of rt2400-source/2500-source)?  I'm 
just wondering - perhaps he has already worked on something like this, or 
planned to do so shortly?

I don't see why - there isn't an existing rt2x00 that would be replaced by a 
potentially non-working new version, so it won't do any harm in unstable, 
while getting wider exposure than it would in experimental.  A 'don't 
migrate to testing' RC bug would be a good idea, though.
