As with experimental, you can override this in /etc/apt/preferences. The
net result of "NotAutomatic: yes" in apt for experimental is that
packages from that repository get a priority of 1, which signals to apt
that it shouldn't automatically install stuff from there. If you want
that, just make sure you have a preferences entry that sets the priority
back to 500, like the rest of your archives.

Or whatever else you use, obviously.
