"Never" is definitely the wrong answer: updates-testing is not for stuff 
which is too unstable to go stable, ever. Any update sitting in testing for 
more than (at most) 2 or 3 weeks (usually 1 week is enough, but risky stuff 
should get approximately 2 weeks of testing and regression fixing; at least 
those are the timings our experience in KDE SIG showed optimal) is either 
broken, in which case it should be unpushed (and the maintainer should be 
more careful next time), or not, in which case it should be promoted to 
stable.

We really need some stricter enforcement against stuff sitting in testing 
forever.
