RELEASE - is a release of FreeBSD, which you can upgrade with patchsets, 
staying inside the 10.3 environment. STABLE branches are a development 
edge of major branches, stating that the API is left unchanged and is 
compatible with minor versions inside a major branch, while CURRENT 
branch may already be very different.

So, I'd say not CURRENT nor STABLE branches are intended for production 
use, yet they could be used like this ofcourse. You should install 
X.Y-RELEASE and then freebsd-update it to latest patchset, in the end 
getting X.Y-RELEASE-pZ system, which is the most production-intended
