I think this conversation is derailed by the "must go into
updates-testing first" aspect.  This isn't the intention.  The intention
as I see it is that updates must be tested before they go to stable.
Getting karma in bodhi is a way to prove that testing, and can be done
even with skipping updates-testing.
