Wouldn't providing some debian-cd and live images with a recent snapshot
suffice for now? People would directly upgrade to testing, and since it
is in freeze, it is supposed to be more or less constantly usable.

For example, I would like to try out Debian on new systems where I would
install GNU/Linux. Here's where a recent live image snapshot would help
with the option of installing it to disk. Currently, I have queued a
build on the excellent live-studio web app, but putting such ISOs and
USB images in more accessible locations would give me a place to point
to for people who want to try squeeze now.
