(you unfortunately cut the relevant part:
FFmpeg git head at any time contains less
- known! - bugs but more features than any release.
Or in other words: If you use a release, you knowingly
accept more bugs but less features at the same time.)

No, you completely misunderstand:
It just means that FFmpeg development does not have
the necessary man-power to backport all bug fixes
to release branches.
Allow me to add that if you want to maintain a
release, that would be very welcome!
