No.  You have what you want, I think.
RELEASE is the tested and vetted final product.   
STABLE is just a snapshot of work in progress.

Of course, RELEASE is also a snapshot, but it is frosen, tested, ports
brought up to snuff, etc and then released.   
STABLE is just CURRENT in kind of reliable condition.
Install RELEASE and then CVSUP to   *default tag=RELENG_6_2
or possibly   *default tag=RELENG_6
to keep up to date with security patches.
