That would defeat the purpose of the testing branch and make the path to
stable that much more convoluted:  Self defeating purpose.

I disagree.  I think it's inappropriate to compare Backports and Testing.  They have different scopes.  One is an entire operating system in development, the other is updates to key end-user software running on an otherwise static system that is not undergoing active development.  To equate them is a mistake.
