Sounds good to me...

For backports all you need to do is verify that the version of
wine-development that's currently in testing builds in stable, and
that the dependencies of the resulting binary package are also in
stable (or backports). If all that's OK, you can add a changelog entry
to supply the appropriate version for backports, then find a sponsor.
I've got an account on backports so I could do that, but I won't have
any time before mid-August.

It is possible to get a package which isn't in stable into backports;
it only needs to be in testing. (See for example my libevdev package
which ended up in oldstable-backports.)
