Because if we keep "no breaking updates in stable" policy, then Fedora won't be "first anymore". You can do this only if rawhide will be more popular between people.

If there is going to be a pause F30 seems like a good place to do it:
New glibc, new compiler- and a full year for them to mature.  It's a
nice basis for a stable platform.  What would the update policy be for
this year- same as today?  It seems like you're proposing this as a
one-time event to pay down technical debt, which is great, but would
you perhaps consider doing the same thing for F31, F32, etc?  The
basic reasons for technical debt will continue- why not plan to
service the debt regularly?
