So it looks to me like we currently miss a place to offer a package

there will be more packages in this situation in the future (even
we might not like this).
I do wonder a bit how much this is different from Iceweasel or Chromium
however: there we also ship new upstream releases to stay at a
version (though the life-time for Jenkins seems even shorter). Of
this only works as long as no new dependencies are pulled in, or at
least stay at something managable.
AIUI we do that because it's the only way to get security updates for
either package, which is why they're shipped via the security archive;
likewise openjdk and mysql.
