In my tests (and Osamu backed this up with a transcript of his testing
session) the apt pins can only refer to 'stable' 'testing' 'unstable',
not 'potato' 'woody' 'sid'. Part of the problem was that people who want
to stick with woody after the release is that they can't say 'woody' in
their /etc/apt/preferences . My suggestion should work around that.
Also, I do recommend using 'woody' in /etc/apt/sources.list and removing
lines for stable/potato.
