The current relative stability is only temporary. Red Hat is busy making RHEL 7, with Fedora 18 and 19 as the "upstream". As such, it's in RH's interest to minimize breakage at this point in time. However, based on previous patterns with RHEL 5 and 6, as soon as F19 is released, Rawhide and F20+ are going to have far riskier changes. This almost invariably leads to instability.
A likely big change on the horizon is the deprecation of the X server in favor of Wayland, with all the associated fun and random breakage. This is likely to have parallels with all the PulseAudio fun we had a while back.
