Is it a lack of ideas or that the current software imposes hurdles?

Packages moved from testing to stable would need some sort of
"expiration date". A period of time they stay tagged with
dist-*-updates-testing in addition to being tagged with dist-*-updates.

Untagging them from updates-testing and removing them from the repo
way before they appear in the updates repo instead, is bad. It also
causes broken dependencies temporarily. Those make testing less fun
and lead to confusion when spending karma in bodhi.
