Of course we'll wait until Debian 6.0 is released anyway (there are no
packages yet in volatile or backports).
However, I don't see why having squeeze-volatile on the master debian/
repository (and thus on all mirrors) is an issue?! IMO this is a step
forward and backports will probably follow for wheezy. Probably there
wasn't enough man power to do it for squeeze, at least this is how I
see the situation with backports -- which is exactly in the same
situation as volatile archive was for lenny with the difference that
the backports archive has less restrictions (also a good thing).

The only issue that I can see with the current implementation
regarding stable/security/volatile/backports is report on bug #602390
