I'm not sure what you are trying to do is even doable on a machine
running unstable.

As I understand you only want to do partial updates (for security
updates or something). I'd say you will very soon run into
Dependency Hell (tm), because the new packages will depend on newer
libraries or newer libraries will enforce upgrade of all reverse
dependencies and so on.

This is what stable is for ;)
