I wouldn't put my money on it.. maybe it's stable (for some definition
of the word) now, probably not in a few years.

(Interestingly enough, one price Fedora pays for this so-called
stability is that booting is somewhat slower, e.g. crap like
scsi_wait_scan.ko)

The sdX names never were related to hardware in the same sense as the hdX ones were so 'stay stable' is an odd term. If you know the controller and drive select you knew the hdX name. The sdX names have always been whimsically assigned depending on what else happens to be present. There's nothing you can see to relate the name to a physical device.
