I generally wait at least a week (give or take a day or three) between
dist-upgrades even when testing isn't new, so this isn't as much of a
change as it might seem.

My point is that it's easy to take this approach even with sources.list
naming testing explicitly, simply by not initiating the actual upgrade.
There's no need to track a release by codename, even temporarily, in
order to avoid the chaos.
