There's no reason you (as a package manager) couldn't choose a
particular development release and mark it as stable in your
distribution. E.g., Fedora does this, currently has wine 1.3.21,
unless you enable updates-testing, which has 1.3.29.

In any case, I think this topic is best reserved for discussion at
Wineconf, especially since it's not that far away ;).
