1. Every backport or new upstream version is a few kb or even mb larger so
we would have to skip other packages.
2. Backports did not went through all the Debian QA cycles
3. Not all backport maintainer care about security updates (Adrian does but
it's a general thing)

These are my Top 3 reasons to not include big backports like XFree or KDE.
I asked about this topic in February and got this answer:

If you offer me a plan wich packages I should skip for including a new
XFree I'll try to find some time to test if it's possible.

Anyway if you have good sources for a usefull backport please send me
a mail with the deb and deb-src entry for the sources.list and a short
description so that I can add them to the base-config package.
