Let's see if we can come to a compromise here.

Alan takes the view that users should not be discouraged to try the latest git 
whereas the decision to add this notice to those snapshots was taken in order 
to ensure
that users are fully aware of what they are getting.   I don't think that these 
two goals
need to be mutually exclusive.

How would it be if we changed this notice to:

"This version is intended for testing purposes only. Please report any 

I think that will make it clear that problems *might* occur, without 
frightening or
intimidating the user.

What do you think?
