Because people that have enabled them have already taken the decision that
they want to be guinea pigs for SRU's, and run software that might break
their system. The same goes for backports (people that have enabled them
have taken the decision themselves that they want to run the latest and
greatest software).

Pinning the repository is unnecessary because they are disabled by default
anyway. It would make it practically useless to those of us who want to help
test these packages in *-proposed, as we wouldn't automatically be notified
of the updates which need testing. That would mean that people who wanted to
help test would have to enable the repository, and then un-pin it too (or
manually search for packages that need testing).
