That's not true a daemon that runs does not automatically degrade
performance ... most of them spend 99.9% of the time sleeping, waiting
to wake up when something happens.
Now tell me how does this affect performance in any way?
Increased start up time is the only thing .. as for memory they will
be simply paged out when a non sleeping process needs the memory.

Bugs happen and this was not a feature update but a security! one that
broke things, so doing "just bugfixes" wouldn't have avoided this ..

Having new software/features/drivers without having to wait ~3 months
is one of the reasons why I (and many others) use fedora.
