I proposed only three *branches*, not people. Splitting development into 
two branches and builds will help in isolating faster (separation of 
concerns). If all issues get cleared in dev branch itself, then 
integration branch will still be useful in catching regressions.

I will defer to your experience. I do understand the difference between 
logical and practical in these matters.
