No. Testing has _no_ security fixes. Stable has them, and in unstable
you mostly get a fix in very quickly. In testing, you may have to wait
for weeks until a crucial security fix trickles down from unstable,
there are _no_ emergency procedures.
Sure you can pull them in from unstable when you have both testing and
unstable lines in sources.list, but it's still a hassle
