Because an older package is stable, we are somehow forced to continue 
stabling newer packages if requested either via a stabling request or 
security issue.  In the first case we have to stable to allow older 
ebuilds to be cleaned up, in the second we have to table in order to 
take advantage of the security advisory.
See the "Ruby issue" email for how to deal with packages that obviously 
noone knows what to do with.

You haven't, it was in my initial proposal.  You trigger me to put this 
somewhere on the web for reference.

Ah :)  Good luck.  I'd be pleased if you could take the time (somewhere 
this weekend perhaps?) to look into the bugs and stable the versions 
they ask for.
