Obviously, you will always will have the risk of introducing regressions. That's never guaranteed. The question is which is the priority in stable and I disagree with you. You should try as hard as possible to avoid introducing regressions so I would favor fixing 5 issues with no regressions than the other way around.

Anyway, just my opinion.
