The reason is quite simple: we are frozen. In this state, it is easier to fix 
RC bugs if the version in unstable is the same (or a fix) for the evrsion in 
testing. In thsi case, most maintainers prefer to push things to experimental.

Just wait for Squeeze to be released as stable [0] and then everything will 
get back to normal.
