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.
