Well, it all boils down to pros and cons. In my experience, these
situations are quite rare in Debian. They do happen, of course, but
if the alternatives are following stable (which is old), following
unstable (which is, er, unstable) or packaging all by ourselves, I
think following testing could be a good option.
If there is a show-stopper bug we can always recompile against a
bug-free version on the culprit package - not funny, but better than
the other options, IMHO.
