Have you tried installing a package from unstable onto potato
recently? It certainly is not trivial. When libc or perl change
soname in unstable, they tend to make most unstable packages
uninstallable in stable.
The only way for a newer package to be trivially easy to install in
stable is if a developer goes through the trouble of porting a package
to stable and making it available "unofficially."
