It can be done, though, and it should be the norm. That it is not so,
that's unfortunate, and something we (both the Debian maintainers and
the third-party repo maintainers, together) should improve.

This, however, needs effort from both sides. My experience so far when
building a third-party repo (which includes and replaces a couple of
packages already in Debian) is that the effort isn't all that much, and
well worth it.
