Debian had a bit of a bad name among GNUsteppers (FHS I think,
but it predates me) and there was a derived distribution or two
(not sure whether there still is) which may depress the popcon
results. That won't improve if it's listed after Xfce4 in a
list of desktop environments.  Neither Backbone nor Etoile are
ready for this release. I'm glad that someone wants to promote
Debian to GNUsteppers, but I think sarge has just frameworks
and some apps. Gurkan probably knows more recent detail than me.
