Thanks for the reminder Jóhann, we do have a formal process for
requesting focused testing from the QA team [1].  While the Test Day
process is designed to be self-hosting [2], I still have doubts that we
could accommodate every feature owner if they all requested focused
testing.  Just not enough days.  More to the point, not all test day
topics lend themselves to test days.  So I wonder if there is another
service the QA team could offer.  

We have the infrequently used reactive response should a feature fail to
meet it's stated objectives.  However, is there something we can offer
that's more proactive (as a compliment to test days)?

The % complete is intended to track development efforts.  Should that
change?
