That would create a support nightmare for many users. The slow release
cycle of stable was a major factor in our decision to move from SuSE
to Debian.

Upgrading all of our customer's machines twice a year would cost us a
fortune and really upset our customers.

I particularly like the fact that "testing" is available to users
wishing to use more up to date software while "stable" changes
