I have been using the backports as regular repos for years now and some
(solvable) version conflicts with kernel modules put aside, I never had any
problems with them.

That would be a nice feature for urpmi. But it's only useful in certain
borders. Sometimes newer versions are changing things about the configuration
in the user's HOME, the older versions can't work with. So there will be
problems with some packages if you do a "rollback upgrade".
