The reason why Wheezy Extended LTS packages are not in the Debian
repositories is because Debian was not interested in keeping the wheezy
repositories alive for longer.

So Debian is not going to merge those packages.

And while you can benefit from those packages freely, this is only
possible because there are sponsors paying the work required to provide
those updates.

See https://deb.freexian.com/extended-lts/ for details.
