binNMUing packages from unstable into experimental

Hi wanna-build-team,

I first sent this to d-release, which was a off topic and I was sent

Here at ICFP I feel a slight push to upload updated Haskell packages for
Debian. Now as we are in the freeze I am not supposed to do that into
unstable, as only stuff that I want to enter wheezy should go into
unstable until the release (that’s right, isn’t it?). The usual solution
is to upload to experimental then.

But with Haskell packages, an upload usually requires some depending
packages to be rebuild. In unstable we handle that by binNMUing the
depending packages. So my question is:
Is it possible to have the build daemons to create binNMU
builds of a source that lives in unstable, but put the binaries into
experimental? If not, what would it take to implement that?
