Proper test installation?

I had an idea while doing the docs:

How about another Bugzilla installation on Landfill:

It would run the tip, but differ from bugzilla-tip/ in one key respect: 
there would be a clean database with a few sensible bugs in various 
states, a few accounts, products and components with sensible-looking 
default owners (but listed in "nomail"), a decent history of reporting 
data - i.e. a typical "small Bugzilla" - which it would reset to every 
weekend. So user accounts and bug changes would be removed.

Additionally, unlike bugzilla-tip, it would have all features enabled.

Then, we could reference this system in the documentation for demo and 
example, without fear that it'll have changed beyond recognition, or a 
documented feature won't be present.

Is this worth having? Is it too much work? What do people think?
