Hmm, last time I checked, none of the deb-multimedia versions were set
to be more recent than the Sid ones. They're also not automatically
upgradeable, apparently. At least, last time I did a system upgrade (not
dist-upgrade) it didn't upgrade any of the deb-multimedia packages, even
though some of them had been upgraded by deb-multimedia. At least I have
to manually upgrade one if I want to.
I mostly use it for the win32 codecs, AACS keys, easytag, mplayer.

I don't always agree with Debian's personal idiocies, such as their
hatred of cdrecord. I replaced wodim with cdrecord, and was surprised to
find out that CD burning WORKED ON MY LAPTOP AGAIN. Wodim had been
failing with "hardware" errors for a few years before that.
