Ralf, Harald, you both actually mean the same thing, you're just 
misunderstanding each other due to inexact wording!

Yes, distro-sync will not remove packages which are not in the default-
enabled repositories at all (in any version) (nor will it downgrade them, 
obviously, because there is no version to downgrade them to).

And yes, distro-sync WILL downgrade packages if the new version is not (or 
not yet) available in a default-enabled repository.

It is clear that both of you know this, there was just a misunderstanding.
