There are at least three other options I can think of:
- not using an experimental repository in a stable environment;
- using a more recent apt on machine where an experimental repository is
- make apt (or apticron) ignore such error and get this change accepted
  in the next stable update.

The third possibility may make sense in the near future, so we can start
benefiting of this feature early in Strech development, without people
using Wheezy being bored by the same kind of error messages if they have
an unstable or testing repository in their sources.list

Indeed, keeping it open if you wish to reassign it to apt.
(“bts reopen 758153 , reassign 774815 apt , forcemerge 758153 774815 , \
  affects 758153 php-monolog” could be another option.)
