It took people quite a number of months even to notice that testing
existed, and I have the impression that many developers still don't pay
attention to it (I'll not single out examples, but there's plenty of
confusion in the archives of debian-devel). What makes you think that
people won't carry on uploading to unstable as they have done since
199x, and that packages won't therefore languish unfixed from release to

I think unstable should carry on feeding into the release, just perhaps
with finer-grained controls.
