well, technically, stable is at some point branched from testing, that 
is a cherry-pick of unstable. So this terminology is not that far 
fetched either. « The stable branch » of debian is a good name. Though, 
I'm not sure it's true for testing and unstable. and is IMHO completely 
absurd for experimental.
