That would be a huge improvement.  Still, new Adobe Flash Player versions with
security fixes and new features combined would still need to go via backports,
not via security.debian.org because we can't separate the security fixes.

Yes, this is possibility, but Debian don't have easy mechanism for backports. It's need at user understand pools and repos.

If user install plugin from nonfree and updates coming from backports. I see at installer should add suitable repo, possible pinning and made appropriate changes for apt's config files.

IFAIK Debian backports and deb-multimedia are quality repos if compare these for Epel, multiverse and others.
