As you'll see in http://security.debian.org/dists/ , there's no package
collection there for "unstable".  My understanding is that, since
unstable is by definition where revised packages become available the
instant they're uploaded by a package maintainer (without the scripted
quarantining of "testing" or the human scrutiny and acceptance criteria 
of "stable"), any "security" collection to give you quicker access would
be at best redundant.
