Well, okay, that sounds like two bugs to me:

1) That email shouldn't be sent until the update actually hits testing
2) We should have per-update repos and a reasonable way to enable them

But there's not really a good way to do what you're asking for as it is.
It's straightforward to hack up the bodhi client to grab only packages
with names that match your installed system, but that will fall down if
the new versions you're about to test require things you don't yet have
