Now that buster is LTS and no longer officially supported, should the

anymore. I hope I am not mistaken or missing anything?

FTR, packages are still entering the -backports pocket and this
probably needs to stop(!?)

Why should it stop? If people are willing to do the work to backport a package, why should it be blocked? The understanding is that the release as a whole will not be supported, but voluntary updates will continue.
