UI's dont need QUITE the degree of testing as telecom equipment or medical devices, where often upgrading or fixing after deployment is impractical, infeasible, or in some cases impossible. Addons dont NEED that kind of rigorous all-cases/all-eventualities oversight, which isn't to say it wouldn't be nice, but it would be a tremendous waste of time and resources.

What addons need is a diverse group of testers, with reasonable communications skills (to properly interpret instructions, and to formulate bug reports), with a masochistic streak (things will fail sometimes), preferably who know how their class is supposed to work so they can provide informed feedback.

If some bizarre quirky case slips through, it can be fixed in a revision.
