I still think that having -proposed pinned back together with apt-changes and links to LP bugs, would allow testers to manually upgrade just a sub set of -proposed packages.
AFAIK update-manager doesn't show them any differently, as it does for PPAs updates.
Synaptic has even less granularity.

But if the idea for -proposed is really to allow a subset of users (brave testers) to try them all at once, please forget what ever I wrote.
