No? Why not?! Otherwise we'd have the same package (eg CSWlibwbclient0) built from two different recipes uploaded to the catalog. Am I missing sth?

Hold on. I was not referring to what Debian as a whole achieves by using different catalogs/distributions or backports. I said "obvious choice for an unstable rolling catalog" which would be unstable/sid in the Debian case. And apparently Debian is going to use an unversioned Samba 4 package in sid.
