Suggestion for new repository of software - new versions of software in between Ubuntu releases

I have a suggestion for a new Ubuntu repository, along the lines
of universe and multiverse.  It would be called something like
updateverse and would include updates to software like Firefox,
Thunderbird, etc in between release.  However, it would only include
stable updates that don't break anything else (i.e. no major changes,
only things like Firefox 1.0 and OpenOffice 1.1.3 - not things like 
updating to X.org from XFree86 or to a new stable kernel series).?
Is this possible in the future?
