I know it can be confusing, but the $devel-proposed (that should be future
proof) serves a completely different purpose than -proposed post-release.  Once
Saucy is released, saucy-proposed will serve the same purpose -proposed has
always served.  "Not for humans" only applies to the development phase.

It looks like the two different uses of -proposed should be separated, no? So a $devel release would have an always empty $devel-proposed and all that is currently pushed there would go to $devel-autobuilder-only-proposed or something and a released verison would continue as-is.
