You could of course upload a potato package anyway, and punt the
decision to the release managers. AFAIK the package will end up in
potato-proposed-updates where interested users of stable can get it.
The chances of it appearing in potato are pretty slim, of course,
because (a) it sounds like a big enough change, that even a backport
(should you take this work on you) is probably too destabilizing, (b)
it's dubious whether another potato point release will be done at all.

You should definitely tag it with "potato" if you keep it open.
