Maybe, I dare say, it would be interesting to rethink how complex systems like DEs are organized. Most of the annoyances users have are caused by Mozilla's,Xorg`s, KDE's, Gnome's, LibreOffice's and etc products, mostly because, sometimes even in Sid, their packages are affected by a huge lag when we consider mainstream.
A platform like lauchpad/ppa, which would allow one to smoothly add repositories with newer packages, would not only be interesting, but would be game-changing for some users. Allowing the end-users to get some love in those cold winter nights that the freezes carries with them would, probably, please all sides and help to gather even more users back to Debian.
