No matter the priority, a package with an RC bug count higher in sid than in
testing will never migrate automatically to testing. A newer version might
fix a security problem, but might introduce other RC bugs, so the package
with seucrity problems stays in testing until the version in sid is fixed (at
least to the point where it doesn't have more RC bugs than the one in sid).
