Anything you can directly upload to is "unstable", by definition.  

The only real distinction I can see between "testing" and your "candidate" 
distribution is a layer of manual control over when big changes are allowed 
to move into "candidate"... and we already have that ability, if a bit 
clumsily, by filing a release critical bug against a package that's in 
unstable before it gets promoted to testing.  

A "cleaner" way to implement that kind of promotion hold might be exactly 
the right solution to making this better?  I don't think that adding a 
fourth distribution feels like a good balance between effort and reward.
