I think this is wrong, I felt really sad about know this (I'm debian user).
GRASS7 exists since several years, there are a lot of new stuff for
users and it is not a fault of GRASS community if QGIS community was
not able/interested to update the plugin, so I think that the Debian
users have to use the latest and greatest GRASS version. Please move
GRASS 7 from experimental to testing as soon as possible (some Italian
Debian users were disappointed they cannot use GRASS 7).
