I agree. I can appreciate that there is probably a lack of manpower to achieve this goal. But somehow, I get the feeling that delaying the release of UPs leads to more problems/conflicts arising within the release. This, in turn, delays the release even further which causes more problems/conflict to arise, which... well, I think you get the idea.
Of course, I've no way of knowing whether my suspicions are anywhere near the fact. However, if such a situation is occurring it not only leads to excessively large downloading of files every new release but also to the rushing out of incomplete or poorly tested Update Packs just to assuage demands for another release.
...(not whole quote )t doesn't work exactly like that.

If debian testing repo is so "unreliable", I vote to leave update packs system as it is, with faster bugfixes if it is possible.
