Firewire issues were hardware specific. Some worked, others didn't and 
others had data transfer issues. It wasn't a global problem with all 
firewire devices. If issues with a particular package are found and 
reported during updates-testing, then the maintainer has to decide on 
pushing the update based on that. All this assumes anyone who has the 
particular firewire devices actually tests the kernel in the the 
updates-testing repository and files proper bug reports before it hits 
the updates repository.
