And there it is again, the rush to get out updates. Quickly! Quickly!
What has been released before is not bug-free, and the update are not
bug-free either, and even if no user has reported a bug, the flow of

No one is saying that.  There is a process now to test changes - KDE utilizes that and
it has been working and your not waiting on an artificially imposed criteria to get new
If as a maintainer you don't release version upgrades quickly, some users
complain everywhere they are permitted to post. Except for bugzilla. And
if you make available upgrades quickly, the users will complain if they
think they are affected by bugs.
Upstream release cycles are not aligned with Fedora's dist release schedule

True, and holding back a release because of the distributions release schedule 
really doesn't make any sense.  The current system handles it.  KDE has proved that.

The latter is turning all users of the stable "updates" repo into
testers once those updates are unleashed so quickly. And those brave ones,
albeit only few, who would be willing to evaluate "Test Updates" for some
time, don't get any real chance to do so, because updates are rushed out.

No, there is a Testing repo.  They aren't pushed to stable until the maintainer decides they
are ready.
