and one real life experience:
I'd like to upgrade to F11 snapshost / preview /... but when I'll found some 
bug, it'll be fixed in F10 sooner than in F11. Not only this, but I'll have to 
wait *one month* before I get these fixes! (Yes, I can download them from koji, 
but I'd like to have fixed also bugs reported by other users/testers.)

/me thinks there is something wrong here...
