There is no definition what backports are unneeded.

There's a conflict of interest between maintainers who will want to
change their testing package as little as possible and users who want to
keep their systems as close to stable. I doubt that there is a
one-size-fits-all solution, but some advice how to resolve this conflict
would be useful.
