This is not a solution.

One can run stable but still use other sources, non strictly
"third-party"; think for example at volatile, or backports, which
unofficial but debian-provided mostly.

So IMO a way to have automatic upgrades on a source per source basis is
something which is needed by our users. It's still not clear to me if
the new APT feature addresses this or not.
