It seems to me that this is the heart of the problem. I don't think anyone really wants to be pushing out broken untested updates if there's an alternative of getting them tested instead. At the moment it's quite a lot of manual work for a user to spot that there's something they might be interested in in updates-testing, test it, and provide feedback. If that situation was eased you could reasonably expect to get more people doing more testing, and the original problem of maintainers being forced to put out updates either untested or not at all would largely evaporate.
