This last is simply not true.  Although it's now significantly /safer/ to
use proposed-updates than it was in the past, because now only packages
accepted by the SRMs are present in proposed-updates reducing the risk of
needing to downgrade & hold a package to get security support,
proposed-updates is not configured by default and there's no particular
reason that it should be.
