This situation seems to be reflected in the Fedora project itself. Guess,
how many Fedora infrastructure servers are run under the latest "stable"

Almost none.  The reason is simple - the Fedora project does not have
infinite resources, the most important of which is time.  As can be
seen from the recent intrusion, completely rebuilding the
infrastructure takes a lot of time and causes a lot of pain.  It's a
better use of human resources to use RHEL in the Fedora Infrastructure
so we don't have to be continually rebuilding systems

I would prefer that Fedora would be stable enough, thus does not require "continually rebuilding systems" ;)

When the infrastructure of some distribution use this distribution immediately, the quality of the distribution is compelled to be much higher. In other words, when you create a bug, it is much better when this bug strikes your head at the same time, rather than someone will report it in bugzilla, where it will be delayed for a long time...
