@Gaia: I am not sure whether you might not want to pin both packages from Security and regular repository (so that you pick up stable point releases for intel-microcode, and security updates for iucode-tool). I am also not sure I would bother to additional complexity via pinning to avoid non-free and contrib - nothing from main is allowed to depend on those components anyway, so the only way to get stuff installed is by installing it explicitly.

Thanks! So I might as well remove all pinning and let apt decide by itself?

it's what I would do - but the choice is of course yours ;)
