That may be true for some QA, but for autopkgtesting of migration
candidates in testing, we need to add the unstable archive. To avoid
writing another installer, apt-get is called to install the required
packages. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find all the bugs in the
QA code yet to prevent unneeded packages from unstable. Not that I
expect this specific class to influence autopkgtest results, but we are
e.g. currently bitten by cruft for a specific class of packages, so the
quality of the unstable archive is causing me brain cell usage.
