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.
