I can only guess of course, I think probably they figured you would
upgrade your system to Sid, then compile a kernel and then *downgrade*

But running a kernel compiled on a *different* Sid system on buster or
stretch is an entirely different thing of course.

It [being a Vulcan] means to adopt a philosophy, a way of life which is
logical and beneficial. We cannot disregard that philosophy merely for
personal gain, no matter how important that gain might be.
