...for the same reason everyone Cc's -devel, to make a great fun exciting

This is the only one of your opinions that's remotely like a question,
so I'll answer it as though you'd written "When will packages be removed
from testing?". You should expect any package with any RC bug to be
removed from testing at any time, once it's been noticed. Packages with
release critical bugs are not suitable for use, by definition.

If you want Debian to release with some particular packages, make sure
they're packaged in a releasable state. It's not particularly complicated.
