I often have a situation when a stable status packages needs to be
upgraded up to testing status because of dependency,

stable to testing status.
I was annoyed by such things too (I mix testing, unstable and
experimental), until I started using reject and accept in the dependency
resolution dialog of aptitude.
When using aptitude interactively, and investigating the suggested
changes, I can reject a suggestion by pressing 'r', and by rejecting
some key removal suggestions, I rather quickly get to a reasonable
suggestion recommending the changes that I want.
Hope it helps, although I know it was not what you asked for.
