Not going to work. The whole point of a distribution release is to keep the 
versions of the programs stable and just do security fixes. That way, you're 
safe from any potential regression in the programs you're using. I agree that 
Wine tends to release too often for the usual distro release cycle, but I'd 
argue that so far we've not done a too good job about _not_ having 
regressions. So I doubt the distros will upgrade the Wine versions
