I've to agree with Jakub here. It feels wrong to abuse the urgency
to lower the staging periode in unstable before a testing migration.

If the package is not fit for a release, or disruptive, or whatever I
had the feeling that there is a mutual understanding within the project,
to use experimental. If a transitional period within unstable is required
without breaking testing we often enough used rc bugs against our
own packages. And now we start to fiddle with urgency settings and place
bets on the required testing periode in unstable?

We can of course discuss lowering this hold back time archive wide, but
working around the discussion with this proposal feels not right.
