No. As I explained, 400 is a priority lower than 500 (which is the
priority of installed packages) so packages are not upgraded to
experimental unless you upgrade your package to experimental

That is when you're using unstable, and you do apt-get -t experimental
install gnome, you'll update your Gnome packages with the experimental version.
And after that apt will follow your decision to go with experimental but
only for the package that are currently using the experimental versin
and not the other package (who have an experimental version available
but where you're using the version in unstable).
