Edit at 31-08-2013 1135 UTC:
Apart from xserver-xorg-core being automatically held, it should be safe to dist-upgrade  in most cases. There could still be a few corner cases in the wild and it is incumbent on you, the user, to remain vigilant.

We strongly recommend that you do not go near a dist-upgrade for a few days.]]
