Doesn't this diminish significantly the advantages of CUT? Back in the
days of the CUT discussion, one of the main "issues" associated to
testing is that it stops rolling during freezes.

That is entirely normal for the purpose of releasing stable, given that
testing has been developed as a tool to that end.  But it does make
testing less appealing for those that have over many years found other
interesting uses of testing, such as using it as a basis for rolling
derivatives (e.g. Mint), or as a distribution for power users that still
want some sort of "protection" between them and the latest uploads to
unstable & experimental.
