I would recommend "apt pinning" for this. That is, add testing to your
sources.list, but tell apt to prefer stable as far as possible.

For the apt pinning, add a file to /etc/apt/apt.conf.d , call it
something like 50defaultrelease . In the file you need one line saying

       APT::Default-Release "stable";

Then add this line to /etc/apt/sources.list

       deb testing main contrib non-free

Of course, you can use any other mirror as well.

Now, if you specifically request a package that needs something from
testing, it will be installed. Otherwise you will keep tracking
