There were several discussions over the last years. And yes, our vision of
backports does not match the vision of those fastpace/not ready for
stable/whatever you call them repos. In our vision debian-backports consists
of new (tested, as in "is in testing") features from the next debian release.
By definition that does not match packages that will not be part of the next
debian release.
