Well… Nightlies would be appropriate in experimental. And even there, I'm 
far from certain that daily uploads for a given package would really be 
appreciated (it puts a big load on buildds, mirrors, networks, …).

unstable is certainly not for "the latest and greatest", especially now that 
we are approaching freeze time. Packages uploaded to unstable are meant as 
candidates for testing.

With our current processes, there is no possibility of differentiating 
uploads to unstable and uploads to testing: a packages _migrates_ to testing 
from unstable when a given set of conditions is fulfilled.
