Why should Xorg or kernel updates be a exception?
We are not talking about a formal test process. But if we do have the information (about an update breaking a popular proprietary package), I don't see why we should intentionally withhold it.
Also, if we have a group of volunteers willing to test popular proprietary packages (PPPs), I also don't see how it hurts anyone. I do use VMWare extensively for all my OSS development and packaging, certainly I'm willing to test new kernel update candidates...
