Ok, I'm reading "http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/debian/cut/"; and I think it's 
project it's near my idea. But I'd like to add "oriented to final user for 
home" approach like Debian Desktop. I'll contact him to share and to talk 
about this.

So, if I have understood, main tasks are:
- debian-installer must work correctly when you are in testing version
- Security updates must be present in testing like in stable version
- Investigate and "test" the testing frequently
