Actually, we have a semi-stable repository.  It's named "unstable".
Stuff that Will Cause Breakage(TM) can generally be found in
projects/experimental, or in other separate repositories (such as
gnome-staging).  I agree that it would be nice if it were easier to
choose some packages from stable and some from unstable (and maybe
even some from experimental or whatever).  Might be worth a wishlist
bug against apt, but it's not really a policy issue.

Followups should probably go to -devel or some other more appropriate
list.  (-deity?)
