The other problem with using updates-testing in this way is that it
makes it more difficult if you have to deliver a real bug or security
fix to stable. Now you have to unpush your testing version, mangle
your git history, file a new update ...

I agree with Kevin that this is pretty much exactly what COPR is good
at (and what I'm using it for myself[1]).
