Is it the expected behavior?  IMHO, with the control key, backtab
should report <C-backtab> for consistency.  WDYT?

I think the current behavior of matching a key exactly is sensibly 
conservative.  Custom key building should be done explicitly.  You didn't 
actually press backtab; you pressed control, shift, and Tab.

You'll need to learn Emacs what you mean:

 (define-key function-key-map [C-S-iso-lefttab] [C-backtab])
