Myabe I didn't explained myself correctly, but I exactly wanted to say
what you are saying too. People used to pushing to stable quickly in FE
days wanted to avoid as much as possible delays in bodhi, and part of 
the delay is avoided by pushing directly to stable. Removing this possibility
would be a regression, then which is avoided if it is possible to push
to stable directly.
