What will we do for SRU verification?

Will we introduce a new -proposed-for-humans pocket once Saucy
is released? Or will we need to go edit everything that once said
"saucy-proposed isn't for humans" to read "t-proposed isn't for humans"?

It seems so strange to spend six months saying "don't touch that" just
to turn around and then spend nine months begging people to touch that...
