[cut-team] Bikeshedding alternate names for "testing"

I know this is probably a bad thing to do, but here I will do it anyway:
If we can rename "testing" (which is a truly bad name, in my opinion), we
should call it "next". Debian would be similar to the Linux kernel and
lots of other projects that way, and the name would also make sense.
(I also think a rename of "testing" is feasible so long as we change all
the documentation, even if we still permit users to use the "testing"
name. It's okay if the old name still works; it's bad if we tell people
that testing exists. I volunteer to spend two consecutive full days moving
toward that, if we decide to change the name.)
Hopefully not-too-offtopicly yours,
All things that are, are with more spirit chased than enjoyed.
