They won't sit in forever, at worst they'll be pushed to users with the next
Fedora release (that will have been tested properly during beta)

No. It's *our* loss if we needlessly frighten of part of our userbase with a
shoot and forget attitude. I know there have been phases in my life when that
kind of release management would have convinced me to never touch Fedora
again. Then I wouldn't have contributed all I did since. And there are also
many cases (in education for example) where someone that do not contribute any
bug reports, will prescribe Fedora to others that will. Except he'll only do
it if he feels the project is solid.
