fixed-in-experimental is just an informative tag, and doesn't have any
functional consecquence; it is really obsoleted by versioning, which
does.  If you mail n-done@BDO with a Version: $v pseudoheader, where v
is the version in experimental, and later upload to unstable a version
"derived from" the version in experimental, the BTS will consider that
bug fixed in sid, too.
