No, we can't jump to the next release if it's only in beta. Just because we
want new features doesn't mean we want a beta distro! The earliest
a "stabilization" like that would be acceptable would be 1 month (time to
upgrade) after the next release is out.

And I don't see how the current system is not "usably-stable". Fedora just
works.
