The Mandriva International Backports are packages created for Mandriva.
So they may work by chance on Mageia, or they may break everything.
And it is of course not supported by Mageia.

It is not recommanded to use packages repositories created for other
distribution as it may introduce problems.

If you think some packages are missing on Mageia repositories, you can
open bug reports on https://bugs.mageia.org/, in component "New RPM
packages requests".
