Why not impose a self-restriction on the number of critpath packages?
Make a rule like "The ratio of proventesters to critpath packages must
be x or higher". When the critpath numbers start creeping up, drop a
few other packages from critpath. This will help focus testing

This then implies creation of a process that involves continual review of
the critpath package list, where it was designed to be able to be simply
computed without a lot of manual work.
