Are staging modules frozen under the same rules as the rest of stable ?

Fine; in my case at least there is no damage.
Perhaps then the "staging" status of a module could

Agreed.  It's the developers that have to write the code.
I think that's why the original discussion took place on the
speakup mailing list.
