But aren't these just the packages that you installed from unstable and
which are not (yet) in testing?


PS: I have downgraded from unstable to testing two weeks ago. The biggest
    pain was deleting the debconf DB (as suggested by Joey Hess) which
    aparently was not downward compatible and the resulting troubles that
    packages had afterward with that. I spent about 1.5 days downgrading
    3 machines.
