This is essentially what a Fedora Core release is right now.
Rawhide gets the newest packages without caring about disruptions. At
fixed point in time a "snapshot" of rawhide is taken and it becomes Test1.
Developers and testers work with Test1, Test2, and Test3 to get the
disruptions cleared up and make sure everything works together. Then that
set of packages becomes the "release".
After the release, rawhide goes back to getting the newest packages
without caring about disruptions while the release gets security and bug
fixes without disruptive changes.
