You have a good point, we've been talking about creating a STABLE2 branch
that's equivalent to the RHEL5 branch except follows upstream kernels.
(Same way the RHEL4/STABLE branches worked.) We're hoping to wait a while
longer before doing that, though.  A little more discipline about what's
checked into HEAD will make HEAD as effective (for now) as STABLE2.
