Imagine a sources.list like this:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stable base xfree86-4
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/backports/ testing kde-3 gnucash
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/backports/ unstable gnome-2.6

or something similar. It may allow the build system to automate backports of componets if possible. Although I don't really know. I do think it will make it much eaiser to update a single component, but as the article says, the user will see very little if any changes. It is the deveopers that will benifit.
