Iff people actually test proposed-updates. The feedback so far has been very slim. (Probably nobody knows about stable-announce.)

Furthermore, from the pov of the user, stable-updates are less
disruptive.  They can choose to take a point release when it comes
out, or to defer it.  When they do take a point release that can be a
planned activity so that they're ready to deal with any regressions.

Only if you mirror everything locally. And if you do that, you could also cherry-pick security updates.
