Or to say it differently:
experimental being really for new stuff
unstable unfrozen always:

This is similar to what used to happen before the testing suite existed - unstable was copied to "frozen" and that was beaten in to shape until it was suitable for release. "testing" was designed and implemented by the Release Manager of the time to try and avoid the issues created by that situation.

Please do some research on why things exist before suggesting getting rid of them, particularly in favour of thing they replaced. (The debian-devel post explaining the introduction of testing really isn't that difficult to find.)
