You haven't addressed how dependancy handling is going to work with this
system yet.  You've also not really explained why this distribution is
going to be able to avoid getting packages with uncaught errors in them.
Basically, this seems to have many of the disadvantages of
unstable and most of those of testing.  I'm not sure it really offers
enough to outweigh that.

If you can automatically determine when the package is ready to progress
then you should be able to just progress it.
