I certainly don't want to guarantee it.  But I'd like to avoid breaking
forwards compat if there is a viable alterative.  If portmgr@ uses
RELENG_6 to base their builds on breaking forward compat would mean all
consumers of packages-6-stable would also need to use RELENG_6.  If a
forward-compat-breaking commit got done to RELENG_6 one month after
6.3-REL and portmgr@ began using that as the base for their
packages-6-stable package builds ...
