Seriously? When I push out an update to testing, I already have done the
tests on it in my system, and it *think* it is correct. What would be
the point of pushing out something that is known to be broken?

The time in testing is for others to others to do the same. The result
is that the push to stable is based on acks from the maintainer's + n independent people.
You seem to be saying that the maintainer's checks alone are better.
