I do see your point. Solutions could be also to provide a Tramp
function a user could apply via customizing
`make-backup-file-name-function', or to implement
`find-backup-file-name'. First alternative has more charm to me.

Or convince Emacs maintainers to handle Tramp file names as
well. Currently they are doing the following (see files.el, function

;; Normalize DOSish file names: convert all slashes to
;; directory-sep-char, downcase the drive letter, if any,
;; and replace the leading "x:" with "/drive_x".
