Well there is structure behind the ubuntu archives:
*-security - as it´s name says
*-updates - bugfixes for the stable branch which are less restrictive then
"only pure security fixes"
*-proposed - "public beta" for fixes that will be later on moved over to
*-updates. That is due to QA reasons.
so *-proposed has always to activated manually, as this means:
"Yes i am aware of less tested bugfixes and would like to help them to go
into the official archive"-Policy.
