Not wise. New features and fixes are applied to configuration files and
rc scripts regu;arly. You'll probably miss them.

Wrong. According to the handbook:
220.127.116.11 What Is FreeBSD-STABLE?
FreeBSD-STABLE is our development branch from which major releases are
made. Changes go into this branch at a different pace, and with the general
assumption that they have first gone into FreeBSD-CURRENT for testing. This
is still a development branch, however, and this means that at any given
time, the sources for FreeBSD-STABLE may or may not be suitable for any
particular purpose. It is simply another engineering development track, not
a resource for end-users.
RELENG_6 is STABLE
RELENG_6_3 is for security fixes
