And it's totally unrealistic because the only people who're going to
sit before a test box without real data are people paid for testing
(ie not community contributors).

You can't have it both ways - either you pay people to do testing on
fake safe data (very expensive), or you have volunteers testing on
their own systems (with their own data), and you have to work a
minimum so you only eat this data in very rare cases.

And even kernel.org does it so anyone who feels autosigning packages
before uploading to the root mirrors is "unprofessional" can complain
on LKML and get educated :).
