No, it means that any change/feature might not persist into the next
stable version, and also that you may pick a bad version.

Basically, picking an unstable version is something you should not do if
you are not prepared to update next month (or week) again.  Or be
prepared to downgrade in the case of problems.  The stable versions are
more of the "install and forget" kind of quality.
