Maybe, if you had done that before Jessie was stable and had managed
to ride the changes okay.

Don't do it now or you'll be in a serious mess of the sort where the
best answer is to back up your data and maybe your passwords and
re-install from scratch.

It might be good to have Synaptic issue a warning to that effect when
certain (repository) targets are changed, but that would be something
to take up on a developers' list, maybe.
