That would be a big mistake were you to do that now, but it's
concealed by your mixing these different categories again. Looked at
this way:

wheezy - jessie - stretch

or this way:

oldstable - stable - testing

you can now see that you be trying to dist-upgrade by two steps. If
you do that, you're on your own: the Release Notes won't help you a
lot if you get into trouble.

Your jessie to testing change is one step, but be aware of the fact
that you're also changing your strategy, as explained previously,
from a static distribution to a moving one.
