That's not how open source works. Individual projects do not get to determine 
upstream software supports and what not. And that goes both ways.

For example, in Ubuntu we already use separate builds for signed & unsigned 
Or one may keep grub-2.06 as separate source package. It's not like those old 
need any new features in the bootloader ever again.

That's not the point. Packages are constantly rebuild in Debian for various 
reasons and
having to maintain the package manually in Debian is quite annoying.

Forcing older ports to use forks of upstream projects is an "elegant" way to 
kill of these
ports as the maintenance burn gets too high.
