Comment (by dd32):

 At present 99% of the update functionality is built around the idea that
 there'll only ever be a single "current release", having a beta channel
 effectively means having two "current releases".

 So while this unfortunately isn't a simple change, it's something that
 would be possible - however I question how much it'd be used by the wider
 community outside of the top 10 plugins (where some have a beta-tester
 plugin for their plugin which includes other things such as bug reporting)
