And if you're going to just unconditionally stick something in testing after being in unstable for a week, you're losing the benefits of that week delay in the first place.
I'm not suggesting sticking anything in "testing."
What I am suggesting is adding capabilities to apt so that updates can be delayed for x number of days in the hope that major problems can be avoided. This would not require an additional branch.
Think of it as following someone on the highway 4 or 5 seconds behind, instead of right on their back bumper.
