That's the general idea I'd like to see too.  Slink was delayed far
too long (at least enough to make many people complain about Debian's
outdatedness and switch to "unstable" before slink was frozen).  It
would be nice to sort off "clean the table" as far as up-to-date
versions are concerned and then go on with the list given by Edward.
This way we might be able to present an up-to-date version on the
pretty well-testted and debugged foundations of slink.

In a way, this might lead to a healthy "stare-case" - one release for
update of infrastructure (slink, in that case) and the next for an
update of package versions (right now potato) since the infrastructure
may take so long to test.  It might not fit for all times, but at the
current situation this sounds reasonable to me.
