I expect you want it as part of the unstable feed, not the testing feed.
 I can fully agree with that.  People who use the unstable feed are the
people who know they are testing the integration and distro consistency.

No, it definitely belongs in unstable, but never in testing
automatically.  Someone has to make a conscious decision (and commitment
to the community that it should work) to edit sane-srcrevs.inc to make
something new appear in testing.

Unstable feed is the appropriate place for kernel stable branch head.
