Why shouldn't a developer encourage an ordinary user to run unstable?
* It would speed up the bug finding process. (Don't mention testing, please)
* For most users, unstable is stable enough for daily use.
* Whether unstable should be used by ordinary users, is still somewhat 
controversial. Until this is officially resolved, enforcing this restriction
would result in a minor freedom deprivation.
* Some may enjoy having a constant stream of newly added bugs, or maybe not.
