If that happens for a too long period, we might consider such an

I think it makes sense to shorten the list of arches we wait upon for 
testing migration, but I fail to see the usefulness of removing an arch 
from testing.
If we don't wait for an arch, it gets out-of-sync quite soon, and due to
e.g. legal requirements, we can't release that arch. (In other words, if
an arch is too long ignored for testing, we should remove it, as we
can't release it in any case.)
That would be understandable with the intention to release all arches at the same time.  In this case the release should be at a different time *if* that arch is in a releasable state.  Otherwise, it is not released.

The point is that propagating to testing is very useful, and it still leaves the status of that arch to the porters.  With testing there for SCC arches, it everyone will just point to the porters for that arch if there is a propagation problem.
