Thomas has delivered out 2.0.2 with 1.2 and I'm not sure if it makes
sense to put just in 1.3 and hope that every package declares a dep
on 1.2 or later(!).

Exactly. Thomas continues releasing beta releases for the upcoming
teTeX 3.0 since beginning of February. At this time we thought it
will take just a few month, but... For some reasons we won't upload
to unstable but rather to experimental as soon as it is released.

No, we're releasing with 1.2.
