You are definitely missing the forest for the trees here.  In the
proposals I've seen, the was no mandate that an update spend a week in
testing, provided it got enough karma before that.  If the issue at hand
is so egregious to need a push ASAP, then there should be plenty of
people on hand to snag the update from koji and provide you the
necessary karma nearly immediately.
