In the current design "stable" means frozen.

The suggestion was that you have a branch named "stable" (which actually could 
be given some other name) that consists of packages that have been 
through "testing" and found to pass some criteria suggesting quality (in the 
same way that "testing" has packages that have passed through "unstable" 
after some days of delay without new versions).

Then the frozen branches would have some name other than "stable".

Basically it's a suggestion for two levels of "testing".
