The situation right now is that for production you run an ancient system or cross your fingers, hold your breath and run unstable.

Coming from a corporate environment I hardly feel that stable is ancient. With most commercial operating systems the quality control seems so poor it takes a few years before we feel comfortable moving to a new release. But with Debian I can point to the unstable-testing-stable system and my boss understands that it has already gone through a 'teething' period before it's released. If Debian were to accelerate the path to stable too much stable would loose it's value to us. (unless security fixes were released for older stable versions)
