An advantage would be that -updates is activated on most systems while
-backports not, so less people will receive the update.
Problem is that it will break somehow the versioning schema, almost all
packages in the -updates repository have the hardy revision + 0.X, while
this package will have + Y, which can be somehow confusing aswell as the
changelog entry, also it can break some updates and/or other packages
given the new versioning, other than that is a matter of testing and
checking if it won't break anything and all the normal Q&A process.
