This is never asked/answered too many times, is it? Dapper is LTS, so it must 
be stable in the sense of a non-changing environment. This means packages 
will retain their version whenever possible, and only security packages 
backported. So for the next two years, all Dapper installations will remain 
with the same version of every package (except on the exceptions, of course).

Edgy wil be superceded in under a month, so why would anyone bother to 
backport anything to it now? People who uses Edgy are happy to see new things 
coming now and then, and the cycle is normally 6 months. Is it too much to 
wait, to get a new mostly-stable, somewhat tested version of the system?
