Exactly. Not to sound exclusionary, but the last thing any free
software project needs, much less one of Debian's scale, is a few
thousand gnubies groping the unstable tree and filing uninformative,
useless bug-reports by the dozens and posting to the mailing lists
whining, "I'm running $politically-correct-substitute-for-unstable,
something broke, and you all suck because of it." It gets us nowhere.
Wording doesn't need to be changed, in fact, it's a Good Thing. Keeps
the gnubies in stable where they may benefit from having a much larger
number of people and with a software base where, at this point, we've
determined we've got a good idea how all this goes together and know
what can go wrong and how to fix it (oppose unstable, "Something broke.
What a surprise...").
