The link is not as strict as that. As far as I know bzrtools should work
fine with older and newer versions of bzr. bzr-svn usually works fine
with one or two versions of bzr. 

The Debian dependencies on bzrtools and bzr-svn are very strict (tied
to a particular bzr release) since bzrtools and bzr are always released
in the same week anyway and to avoid potential issues with bzr breaking
the API for bzr-svn.
