I think there can be a middle ground. Your argument is based around the fact that an unstable series would take years before releasing a stable 2.8. So let pick something easier.
Simply annouce that no new features will be accepted for two or three months, while a concerted effort is made fix bugs and regressions. A few months is nothing in the timescale of hardware development and would (hopefully) produce something that people can trust.
Whether it works is another question. If people don't like fixing bugs then no amount of time will help. But I think it's something worth trying.
