I do agree with Josselin in here. How is that Desktops systems don't
require that much stability? That's completely false.  If you think
from the point of view of a user, you should be able to conclude that
when someone is using their Desktops and doing an important task for
them, they don't want the applications or the system to fail.

What I have been seeing, when it comes to changes in the release
cycles in Debian, it is that sometimes people who wants to suggest
something (as in this case) they actually do not understand correctly
how Debian works currently. In any case, it is still important that
these kind of discussions arise in certain times (but at least knowing
a bit about the release cycles).
