IMO an easy management is having only one repository, e.g. just backports.
Official release exits without backports, so backports are a special
"update", any fixing/security/new version update needed here can override 
the previous backported package itself, so only last version on backport 
is available.

Is that correct? well thinking of installing the previous version in 
case of problem, i'd say no. But since backports are officially maintained 
a problem seen by an user means a problem that has to be fixed and the
fixing released. In this case i'd say yes, it's correct.
