I disagree -- with testing repos that only testers have enabled packages
get at least a bit of testing before they hit the masses. This way
packages for example get tested on x86_64 and ppc before going public,
even if the packager only has access to i386. 

I know, it doesn't work to well with update-testing in core -- but it's
IMHO better then no testing at all.
