[arch-dev-public] putting "beta" software in [testing]

coreutils-8.0 has been released but flagged beta because of some fairly
large changes in rm which now uses gnulib's hierarchy traversal (=
faster) and many changes to gnulib in the area of filesystem
primitives. I found the snapshot before this fully usable, and will do
a "make check/test" to ensure everything is working as it should.
I would like to put it in [testing] _without_ the option of it every
moving to [core]. I know we do this for some software, but never
anything so "core" to the system that I know of.
So... can I use [testing] for testing in this case?
