You have to decide: do you want updates or do you not want them?

I would want them if I had some reason to believe they wouldn't break my machine. But I have my reasons to not believe that.

If you
don't want to wait for the next CentOS release, then obviously you need the
update quickly, so you are in Fedora's target base. But then you can't
complain that you get updates too quickly!

I'd still complain when it breaks.

Why not? Most of the time it isn't broken. Why isn't there a way to avoid the times when it is on the machines where you care?

(You're one of those users with contradictory requirements I mentioned
elsewhere in this thread.)

I think most people would prefer that certain machines never break - and many would be willing to test on a less critical machine if exactly what they tested would later be reproduced on their more important machines, but with random rolling updates it doesn't work.
