Yeah, "more crappy drivers" is real problem, and unstable ABI solves this problem quite handily, so what are the advantages?
It's actually better not to have any drivers rather then have crappy drivers - not just long-term, but also a medium-term. If there are no drivers then someone will write them or hardware will just be abandoned, but crappy drivers make user's life miserable for a long, long time.
