$ grep-excuses lyx
lyx (- to 1.3.6-1)

This question is better directed to the lyx maintainers.

Yes, so again you'll need to ask the k3b maintainers about the status of the
RC bugs.

Since the libboost in unstable shouldn't conflict with the libboost in
testing, it should be possible to install the unstable versions.  The
package isn't going to get updated in testing until the build failures are
resolved, though.
