You can still switch to 'Sid' or 'Unstable' from that page. Most users 
are going to be running Debian Stable right now anyway.

Also, installing a Sid package on Stable is not recommended anyway due 
to dependency issues.

This is the root of the issue. How do Debian Stable users get the latest 
version of Wine that is built specifically for them?

My patch linked to https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=wine-development because the search results produce links to all three, which I think is easiest for users.
