Little clarification for the non-expert lurkers like myself, are you
suggesting that the naming order should be as follows?
unstable --> testing --> stable
... which would match the Debian policy found here:

I took liberty to forward opinion about PPA naming from GRASS ML. The
name for unstable PPA is simply confusing (moreover with combination
of testing PPA used for experimental packages - especially for Debian
users). Could be that I missed discussion about PPA naming, anyway
current names do not respect real usage of PPAs in my eyes.
And I want to express again big thanks (especially to Angelos) for
making ubuntugis project alive! Martin

Do you have any chance to influence the naming of the PPAs?
As recently also discussed on the QGIS mailinglist, packages from a
repository named "unstable" can get blocked by system administrators
(who not necessarily will take the time to try to understand what is
behind all applications), regardless if I as a user tell them that
"unstable" actually means "current release"...
Would be nice to have a more admin-friendly name there...

recently ubuntugis maintainers changed their policy. This means that
currently is used this workflow:
OSGeoLive nightly --> UbuntuGIS Testing --> UbuntuGIS Unstable -->
What does it means for GRASS?
1) experimental packages (like Release Candidates) are uploaded to
Testing PPA 
2) final version packages are uploaded to Testing and Unstable 
3) Stable PPA can contain older version 
For user who want to help with testing experimental packages: please
use Testing PPA otherwise use Unstable (if you prefer up-to-date
version) or Stable PPA (you prefer stability - slightly older versions).
