Someone at some point has to catch the problems, report them and/or fix them.

While it helps to avoid reports like "ConTeXt doesn't work" before the
version of ConTeXt that's compatible with the latest LuaTeX even gets
imported, it doesn't hurt if problems like broken XeTeX formats,
broken mktexlsr on Mac etc. get fixed as early in the process as

If people are aware that they are testing and not installing tlpretest
for mission critical project, that seems perfectly ok to me.
