Yes, such as the 4.2betas and rc's recently before the official release of 4.2, 
and possibly betas for 4.3 (I am not sure on that for Intrepid, though). It is 
the way Kubuntu has provided the Latest and Greatest for a while now as they 
can't by Ubuntu policy add new versions of stuff to an existing release for the 
most part.

No, not at all. This repo is unsupported, though created by the Kubuntu 
Packaging Ninjas(tm). Main updates, such as the recent KDE4.1.4 for Intrepid 
were in the normal update channels and are supported.
