I don't see the problem here. Unstable stay unstable and unfrozen, or
stable+2 as Thomas Goirand wrote. The packages going into testing are
from unstable before the freeze (stable+2) and from the old unstable
(stable+1) after the freeze.
Or to say it differently:
experimental being really for new stuff
unstable unfrozen always:
- stable+1 if no freeze
- stable+2 if in freeze
- and stable+1=unstable at the freeze time.
