My proposal for backports is to have only the dependencies of packages in volatile that fall in the current definition of backports kept there, ie,

1. They are already in testing and
2. will be part of next stable.

And use volatile only for packages that cannot fit this criteria. I'd be happy to join the backports team to help with the extra load. I hope others will join too.

But if that is not possible, volatile as a separate archive is also fine. It is just that many packages will have to be in both archives and that is a lot of extra work, which I think can be avoided.
