I have to disagree somewhat with that. It may be true at the start of the
development cycle, but when stables approaches a 3 year age, and we start
making noises about releasing sarge since over a year, more and more people
start considering sarge or even sid as debian. And since stable is out of the
developers hand anyway, once the release is done, there is not much help in
considering stable as debian.
