And what are the benefits of your approach, compared to using Testing?

As there is a delay in introducing new packages to Testing, any problems that are introduced to Testing stay there for 10-14 days.

With sid, a new version is pushed out straight away so any problems are actually dealt with more quickly.

Yes, testing may "work" for longer. But it breaks for longer too. Some packages can be broken/ removed for months until there is a "fix" in unstable.

So its either:
More time working; more time broken
vs
Less time working; less time broken

Obviously it all comes down to the users capabilities too!

Of course You're right. Testing is, well, for testing...
But: If a single human is holding the resposibility for a quality of particular package, then obviously, he can mislook something - and here's where the users can come in: report bugs people, report bugs with as much as possible detailed bug describtion.
