I would have to disagree.  I keep my workstations on stable and like to
build chroots for stable, testing and unstable (in addition to pbuilder
chroots).  Not being able to build a testing chroot is a bit of a
hindrance.  I mean, sure I can install stable and upgrade, but that
makes scripting some things a bit tougher.  For example, it would be
nice to be able to have piuparts be able to build a lenny chroot
straight off.

Though, I think the D-I issue is more important than the above.
