Could you elaborate on this? One thing we've covered is downgrades,
which are not supported. Mixing packages from different repos is not
necessarily a problem, if the dependencies are coordinated between the
repositories. What else do you expect from package management software?

In practise, I've seen very few situations where a dependency problem in
a released version of Debian (that's a key point) exists. When one
exists in a pre-release version of Debian, the specific situation where
it arises is often avoided by tweaking some of the dependency
