Netboot images get a kernel modules mismatch when the ABI is bumped,
which isn't a new thing. If one wants to use a released d-i, there are
other installation images (CD or DVD images etc.) to pick from.

There are also dailies built, so that one can test newer images until
the next d-i release; which is what you've mentioned at the bottom of
your mail.

That's incorrect. There's always a slight delay between when the
debian-installer package is uploaded, and when each and every bit
is ready, and images are built/published. The former happened on
2014-10-02, the latter happened on 2014-10-05.

FWIW 3.16-4 is pending so releasing images using 3.16-3 wouldn't be
much of an improvement.
