That's my understanding as well.

The "At some point" part would be when we say "hey, let's start working on
cutting a release", which should align with the wiki's
RoadMap<> (which
targeted 2.3 for November, whoops!).

It might cause headaches to commit bug-fixes into Next when it comes time
to merge Unstable -> Next.

Agree. I think the flow here should be to commit change to Unstable and
then cherry-pick it into a branch off the tag (when feasible).
