Actually, for testing tools, I think the requirements are quite
different: you want concurrent runs of the same test case on multiple
machines, so you need to make sure they don't collide.

So for that use case, I rather suggest to setup an installation that
allows dynamic creation of PyPI instances, each one good for only an
hour. Their URLs would be test.pypi.python.org/<generatedid>.
