Pardon for butting in (perspective from a mere end-user)...

You are not recommending anyone *installs* a package in beta.  You are *asking* them to use (once) and test a facility (which is to be the recommended method).  The solid reputation of Debian distributions is in no way diminished.

Just change the wording whilst in beta?  Leave its position in the page (and "recommended" status) as is but include a (mild) warning?
