This (2) is something we should try and figure out, IMHO. Trying to
apply the same rules and guidelines to 8k+ packages doesn't work.

There is a large set of packages which always should spend some time in
updates-testing, but there's an even larger set of packages which it
probably doesn't help at all. The same goes for the pre-GA development
freeze.
