According to this ticket, it states  that it "can be used in production,
__at least  in the context  of Trac__", but  as it hasn't  been released
yet, it  may still contain regressions  or bugs[0]. Therefore,  I am not
sure it would be  a good idea to upload genshi 0.6  to unstable just for
Trac 0.12 (which  has not been released either)  because it would affect
all users...

Maybe I can upload it to experimental for now, so you can upload trac to
experimental as  well. In case genshi  0.6 has not  been released before
the freeze,  then I could upload  it to unstable anyway  if there hasn't
been any complain  from users with the package  in experimental. What do
you think?
