So if you can predict that a future version of the software will make
the current version obsolete you shouldn't release the package in stable?

This reasoning seems crazy.

If I could predict the bugs that would be found in my software, I would
get them fixed. Just because a bug doesn't render any obvious error
messages or currupt any data, doesn't mean the package is doing anything
useful. Just because there is no indication of a bug, doesn't mean it
hasn't been fixed in the latest version.

What about software that *needs* to be constantly updated. This isn't
always because it is experimental software either (eg, virus scanners).
Are you saying that software can't go into stable, ever?
