what you must understand is that debians primary objective is to produce high quality stable releases.Unstables primary purpose is as a build and testing ground for packages headed for the next release.
Getting a kernel to work right for a userbase the size of debians is hard, even more so now linus has abandoned the stable/unstable split. If there is ever to be a hope of a stable release a descision has to be made which kernel will be in the next stable release and then that has to be stuck to.
The bottom line is a new upstream version of the kernel will not hit unstable until after etch release.
