Do we need a beta-channel for the Market products?

As a developer I sometimes find myself in a situation that new product versions are submitted in a faster pace than MQ checks them up for making publicly available. And this is not my pace is so high, as you may think ;-). In theory, an old file can be replaced before checkup with a newer version, but moderators provide this possibility in rare cases. As a result, updates reach end users with a big lag. And of course they'd like to get the updates and fixes as soon as possible.

IMHO, It would be better to have a beta-channel in the Market, the same as Google Play provides. The channel could give product users an early access to not yet verified versions.

Technically this can be done as an additional button Beta, which shows in the Market section of acquired products (for those products with new versions pending checkup). Clicking the button would download such yet unverified version from the site (of course, with an explicit user consent of taking all risks bound to using betas).
