IMO, that would be indeed a good move.

Regarding implementation, I guess we could have a checkbox in the Update 
preferences dialog, which would allow the user to opt in or out of 
betas. Or this could also be a drop-down list with three channels to 
choose from:
* betas/RC's
* releases
* conservative releases

This would make the request for update have one more parameter. Should 
be quite easy to implement, I think.
