I don't think people would like it if their package stayed in incoming
for multiple weeks because there's a backlog on some architecture.
People are bickering enough as it is when packages don't move into
testing that we don't need this extra reason for them to bicker :-)

Unstable is there for that kind of things. And to detect other kinds of
bugs, too. If you're going to keep packages in incoming like this,
people won't be able to test it until it's built on all architectures.
