The debian-installer team is already lacking enough dedicated people to
properly answer all its bug reports [1].  More releases (of any kinds)
that would not have been fully tested would mean more reports.  As this
would be on top of all other d-i duties, I strongly doubt that it would
be a good idea.

[1] Most of them are against the pseudo-package "installation-reports".
    And most of them do not actually reports bug in the installer itself
    but in other parts of Debian.
