Perhaps it would be wise to disable the option in the GUI with a proper explanation of this? It's obvious that proposed _might_ break things, but it's certainly not obvious that it's not intended for humans when there's a GUI to enable it.

The issue is that it's only in the *devel* pre-release when it's not safe for humans to enable it. The GUI for enabling it needs to exist because there are scenarios where humans should be enabling it: people using older stable releases who are crippled by some bug or other, and need to test SRUs sooner rather than later.

Sure, but then you check to see if you're in a pre-release. If so, then add a label saying proposed isn't available for pre-releases, otherwise add the normal controls. How hard could that be? :)
