Package maintainers or reviewers obviously don't love freeze or QA policies but it is a necessary evil if we are focusing on serving end users with robust software.
It really depends on the package and on the userbase. Sometimes pushing packages and waiting for bugreports is the best solution. Once again
it really depends and should be left to the maintainer choice.
Users facing these broken packages might just leave rather than report bugs. Do you care about that?

Even worse if the users face broken packages that have gone through
something labeled "updates-testing".

Alteast then they can contribute towards testing. Bypassing that gives noone besides the maintainers any chance.
