No, a "~bpo8+1" suffix is still correct (it'll always be strictly less
than the version in stretch). If for whatever reason you need to
binNMU packages in backports, you can file binNMU bugs against the
release.debian.org pseudopackage (the resulting packages will have a
suffix of "~bpo8+1+b1").

About backporting xfce 4.12 as a whole...have you discussed this with
the Debian xfce team yet? The initial backport may be manageable, but
is maintaining these backported packages for the entire lifetime of
jessie (and keeping them up-to-date with stretch) feasible? Are you
willing to handle all bug reports associated with these backported
