Not really.  As stated shortly after the Sarge release, one of the
release team goals was to always as close to a releasable state as
possible.  For them, that means removing RC-buggy packages from testing.
Unless the package is very high profile (gcc, glibc, X, GNOME, etc.)
this is probably the best thing to do.
