Oh, absolutely. But testing can have multiple forms, and we could imagine 
requiring autopkgtest before migrating stuff from this automatic suite to 
user-facing suites. Something along the lines of what Ubuntu AFAIK does with 
their pre-development release suite; a no-delay britney that checks suite 
coherency (migrations) and autopkgtests.
