David, that doesn´t say anything about my claim.

AFAIR as I read several times on debian-backports mailinglist on why a package 
was not considered for backports, if a package from Sid installs into Stable 
*without* pulling any additional dependencies from Sid, it is not considered 
for backports.

I do not have any exact references right now, but that is what I remember.
