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