I don't understand. Perhaps the code committed in post-GPLv3
revisions will be hard to include for the reason you give, but you can
still conveniently work around those revisions by branching from an
earlier version at any date.
But then, if stability is your goal, you'll need to cherry-pick the bug
fixes. (And, if that hasn't been clear, that's all *I* want from a
release - a bunch of bugs fixed.)
There will be bug fixes mixed in with the aggressive development in
any case (unless you close the development branch).
Sure. But cherrypicking to the stable branch and appropriately merging
back into the development branch is pretty straightforward. It's what
other projects do. (For example, Mercurial itself.) I'd be happy to do
that, in fact.
