I think it is OK to do this if you add a prominent note in the readme
file that the octave3.0 package is a test release and the version
number of Octave itself remains 2.9.x.  It might also be good
to prevent it from going into the testing, and I think it should not
be the version that one gets when installing the "octave" package
until 3.0 is actually released.
