My feeling is that you ought to go ahead and commit what you have to -dev, but 
add a note to the appropriate pages describing the problem.  We can always 
revert to an older version of problematic packages and some problems won't 
affect all users.

I'm generally in favor of committing frequently to -dev even if there are 
problems.  It gets issues more into the open and has the potential to get them 
fixed faster.
