The impression I got (which might be wrong), is that it was expected that
people would test specific packages from rawhide and not be expected to
be running it all at once. Porbably the best equvialent to current rawhide
would be enabling updates-testing for the pending release. People that
needed some that wouldn't break unexpectedly, but still wanted to try out
the new stuff could run the pending release without updates-testing.
