Debian isn't my favorite distro, I prefer another one that does follow
(software developers) upstream. However, a distro like Debian and the
distro I more often use, have their individual advantages and drawbacks,
but they have in common, that the user sometimes need to become active
and fix one or the other issue, by e.g. building private packages.

Don't rely on the policy of a distro, DIY sometimes will fix issues
faster, then to care about the distro's rules you are using or to switch
to another distro. Stay with your distro, don't care about a policy when
things might or might not be provided for e.g. Debian stable. If you are
aware about the issue, fix it for your machine, or if you don't have the
skill, ask for help, how to do it.
