How are people running unstable going to get them if they are older than the
version that is in unstable?  And what incentive does anyone have to run
testing + testing-updates?  People who want to do Debian QA are already
running unstable, and those who want new packages with reduced risk are
running testing or a mixed system.

A testing + testing-updates system would give the worst of testing and
unstable: possibly broken packages that lag behind unstable.
