It's my personal opinion based on what I would assume to be common 
sense, based on a distro's user-side expectation.

End-users are expecting function and bugs they are suffering from to be 
fixed, ASAP - Nothing else.

Sure. This is the dev-focused perspective. But from an end-user's 
perspective, this aspect is widely negligible.

Sure, these occasionally do.

As I see it, in practice in Fedora, these conflict, because rawhide 
tries to be dev-focused (and end-user unstable), while Fedora N is 
end-user focused.
