the backports process is also worth keeping in mind for folks who are
packagers (even if they don't backport), because the standard backports
process (at least as i practice it) has trouble dealing with use of the
newest and fanciest packaging tools.

so once a packager has seen the difficulties with trying to backport a
package built with bleeding-edge packaging tools, they're more likely to
consider the effects on backporters.

Also, it is useful in terms of thinking about the role source packages
play in the larger ecosystem (e.g. to answer the question: "why do we
need to put versioned dependencies on package if that version is already
in testing?")

so that's a +1 on backports workflow from me too.
