Finally they did. So this reason has gone.

I would love to test Calligra. It seems like it might be a really fine
software package. I already use Krita regularily and from what I read it
has become *a lot* better than 2.3. And then Words seem to have received
quite some improvements as other applications and the framework itself.
It might finally by a viable alternative to Libre Office for me.
I thought about updating / building packages myself, but I think to get up
to speed with the current packaging might take quite some time. I have
some basic debian packaging experience, but never packaged anything really
Anyway, if there is something I could help with in little units of free
time (say 30 minutes or a hour), I am glad to help as I manage to take
time for it.
