I'll tell you the three reasons I'm pushing stuff directly to stable:

(1) New package.

(2) Update to a new package that I know not many people are using.

(3) Something depends on this new package.  Since I can't build
anything against the new package until it goes into stable, and I
don't to wait 2+ weeks to trigger the build of the dependent package,
I essentially am forced to push packages to stable as soon as

Of which item (3) is the most annoying.
