What can I say? `testing' just rox0rs. :)

`testing' operates /almost/ exclusively on a "will this decrease the
number of uninstallable packages?" basis. The only exception is for
binary only uploads where the old binary was essentially out-of-date.

(So really it's the extra uninstallable packages on the other arches
that are more indicative of a problem, in particular that the binaries
for potato might be out of date compared to the source)
