Perhaps that's a not a particular fair demand. See, crucial for Raphaels
idea as I read it is "official" support to users using a rolling
distribution. For both, user support and bug fixing of course.
How could he ever succeed if he can't be sure people involved into
Debian development would at least partially support his approach then?
Imagine people would ask for help on various d-u lists or in the Debian
IRC support channels and all they get is "Sorry, we don't support
rolling.debian.net, get lost and bother $r_d_n_people"; documentation
suggests "don't use anything but stable" and maintainer don't care about
fixing bugs which could improve r.d.n stability.

I agree. This does not imply others should sabotage his efforts
actively. Sure the approach needs to be proven to work before being
integrated into Debian, but one should give r.d.n interested people at
least a chance to succeed.
