I think that the proposal is to:
- rename 'testing' to 'rolling' to make it clear that it's usable as a
  rolling release
- add a new 'frozen' suite, used only during freezes, to prepare the
  next stable release
So, it's not splitting testing into rolling+testing. It's changing
testing to rolling outside of freezes, and splitting testing into
rolling+frozen during freezes.
