My personal opinion? Skip Testing and go straight to Sid. You have more chance of breakage (although it's been very rare in my experience (about 3 years now)), but said breakage also tends to get fixed within hours instead of 10 days. Same for vulnerabilities.

Or a nice alternative is to pin on testing and pull in unstable at a lower pin. This way if something is vulnerable one can just "apt[-get|itude] -t unstable install foo-package" for that one package while still getting the breakages ironed out by the delay going into testing.
