I imagine that one of the team responsible for the ftp archive would
run a script that would move all the files over at once.  It would be
essentially the same thing as one of the regular dinstall runs on
Incoming (except that it would use the "staging area" distribution as
the source of the files).  The dinstall script would have to be smart
enough to know to ignore the old "Distribution:" header, and to put
them all into 'unstable'.

Actually, if you think about it, 'proposed-updates' is the exact same
thing as a "staging area", except those packages get installed into
