If you're lazy, you wait for a kernel to age, like a fine wine.
Aging doesn't make the bugs go away. And bugs are always there.
The kind of aging you're talking about happens to a series of kernels, not a particular one, and is more precisely called "stabilizing." That doesn't happen any more in kernel.org kernel series, but does in some Linux distribution kernel series.
