If everybody is just throwing the latest from upstream in whatever the
feel like it, what keeps a release from being more stable than rawhide?

That's actually not unreasonable.  The update process should be user
driven, as in a user needs or wants something specific from the new
upstream code, we don't just install a bot to throw whatever falls out
of upstream directly at our users whether they want/need it or not.
