As I said, I personally think having the option of using updates-testing may 
be a good idea.  But, I personally would not use it for the install unless 
there was some fix in updates-testing which impacted the install for my 
particular set of hardware (e.g., kernel, firstboot, etc.).

Perhaps there should be some warning to users in the updated Release Notes.

Regardless, having updates-testing is much better than no optional additional 
repositories.
