Don't we sort of have that policy anyway, although maybe not 
officially...   Aaron used to give a "signoff" on any package that had 
been in [testing] for a week or two without signoffs and bug reports.

But an official policy saying that after 7 days a "low usage" package 
can be moved from [testing] provided they do not have a new bug report 
would be useful.  I'd define "low usage" as anything not expected to be 
on most devs installs.
