Nobody suggested doing that for kfloppy or other packages, which hardly
ever get feedback in bodhi.

If a test update doesn't get any feedback in bodhi, what does that imply?

If you mark it stable after 7 days, you've tested it yourself for some
days, correct?

If the update doesn't refer to any bugzilla tickets, what does that mean?

Almost funny, if it weren't possible to mark test updates as stable after
7 days.

It could be that nobody uses the package at all, so it would not a big
deal if an update (or upgrade?) took 7+ days to enter the updates repo. ;-p
