That is correct, they should not be mixed. There is however a remarked out source refured to as universe. This allowes you to use 'unsurorted' packages and includes some not even it the debian tree.
What I am not sure about is how this affects securety patches and the state of flux in universe. So if I use universe will I get securety (or eny other patches) and is univers more like debian testing (with most working most of the time) or unstable (whitch is a bit more exiting/my the seat of your pants.
What I am unsure about
