It's not just kinda abusing updates-testing, *it is abusing
updates-testing*. updates-testing has a specific and explicitly
specified purpose: to test updates before they go to -stable. That is
all that it is for. Anything in updates-testing must be something that
the maintainer expects to submit to stable once testing has indicated
that it works correctly.
