Default essential packages getting deleted when switching to testing libc6

I am having trouble with the libfaac0 package, and have been hoping to
upgrade it the hope that a bug fix has been released for my problem.
The libfaac0 package requires libc6 >= 2.7-1 but etch only has
2.3.6.ds1-13etch8, so I've added a testing distribution to my sources
list.

However, after running apt-get update, I checked what would be
installed if I installed either libc6 or libfaac0, and in both cases
it stated that it was going to remove important packages. I'm not sure
how to proceed:

<<<
asystems:/etc/apt# apt-get -u -t testing install libfaac0
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
The following extra packages will be installed:
binutils libc6 libc6-dev libfaac-dev libncurses5 libselinux1
libslang2 linux-libc-dev locales
Suggested packages:
binutils-doc glibc-doc manpages-dev
Recommended packages:
libgpm2
The following packages will be REMOVED:
linux-kernel-headers tzdata util-linux
The following NEW packages will be installed:
linux-libc-dev
The following packages will be upgraded:
binutils libc6 libc6-dev libfaac-dev libfaac0 libncurses5
libselinux1 libslang2 locales
WARNING: The following essential packages will be removed.

Here is the same for libc6:

<<<

The following extra packages will be installed:
binutils libc6-dev libncurses5 libselinux1 libslang2 linux-libc-dev locales

Any ideas?
Thanks...

Sure. Don't mix Stable and Testing. This close to Stable becoming
Oldstable, Etch and Lenny have very different dependencies.
