The average user won't even KNOW there's an update available in updates-
testing before it's too late (i.e. all his/her data is gone, (s)he asks on 
forums or IRC what's up, and people point him/her to the testing update 
(which doesn't help because all the data is already corrupted/deleted!), at 
which point (s)he'll switch to Ubuntu or Window$ in disgust and swear to 
never use Fedora again).

That's exactly why bugs must be fixed ASAP!
