osm2pgsql (0.96.0~rc1+ds-1~exp1) is already available in Debian
experimental, it doesn't use LuaJIT though.

As long as libosmium doesn't break backwards compatibility, using a
newer version to build osm2pgsql shouldn't be an issue. The Debian
packages uses the packaged libosmium & protozero and strips the embedded
copies from the osm2pgsql source package.

Since libosmium and protozero (used to) have a higher frequency of new
releases that osm2pgsql, the embedded copies in osm2pgsql can be
re-instated if updates of the libosmium and/or protozero packages cause
breakage. Since embedded code copies are frowned upon in Debian the
packaged dependencies will be used for as long as possible.

Kind Regards,
