I'm not suggesting that they're the same, I'm suggesting that by making
backports official it would be self defeating (why not just update
stable?) and complicate things for developers (now they have two stable
packages to follow).  There's a time and a place for backports, but to
make it an official part of Debian would be complicated for developers
and confusing for users.
