As far as I know, the archive maps uploads to testing to
testing-proposed-updates, and so both end up in t-p-u.

There is also testing-security, which first gets uploaded to
security-master.debian.org and then also gets mapped to t-p-u
when uploaded to ftp-master.

But I wonder why we need such a list in policy.  A few examples
might be useful, but this more looks like something for
the developers reference to me.
