I would put this down to the fact that currently in Mandriva backports 
are given little attention by the packagers (as has been mentioned by 
the Mandriva packagers here themselves).
Of course if we make them more central to the Mageia strategy then more 
care and testing is needed before a backport is pushed out.
So I wouldn't consider that a fundamental issue with backports, just a 
procedural issue.
Also personally I would consider CUPS a core app so I wouldn't have 
included that in backports at all.
