No you should not be doing that. 

Did you put "unstable" in your sources.list file? Remember that
"experimental" is not a self contained repository and it depends on
"unstable" for all packages missing from it.

Assuming you did that, then what do you have in /etc/apt/apt.conf
APT::DefaultRelease ? If you have something there, remove it for the
moment until you do the upgrade/install.

There is a file that might stop you from installing everything because
there is a conflict between kdelibs-data and hicolor-icons-theme (which
is not in experimental yet).

I had to do something very weird to fix this issue. (Read previous
posts). However, you might not go through that since the second time I
installed Gnome2.6 on a different system (the one that originated this
report) I didn't have to do anything to fix the conflict between
kdelibs-data and hicolor-icons-theme.
