A security update in sarge for a different package breaks
OOo2 in some circumstances on Sarge. That is, if someone
installs OOo2, which means fetching it from elsewhere
(backports perhaps?) an unrelated security update will stop
it working.

Personally I think the DS team have enough work making sure
security updates are a smooth process for packages *in the
OS*: being expected to test random-external-package-x on top
of that is asking too much.
