In that case, hopefully it will be processed before we freeze, or the
diff will be small enough that we can review it.

This could be phrased another way:
The package is not shown to be mature enough, is introducing a new
package that hasn't been in the main release of debian before, and has
missed the freeze date.
Not having ocl-icd in wheezy would remove the risk of another package
that could go wrong during the release. :)
I would suggest we wait and see as per the above.
