Should we wait for a first stable OpenIndiana release?

I'm excited: it seems OpenIndiana developers consider 148 build stable enough to provide release based on b148-b149 (as I understood, it will be based on latest freely available code from ONNV repository with several fixes and 148-149 builds of other consolidations). Security updates may be available for several core network services (Apache, PostgreSQL and other) for a period of about 6 months.
Long life to OpenIndiana!

Next great step planned for several next builds is moving to Illumos base, which can shake stability, so, it seems, there will be no possibility to make a "stable" release for several months after this serious shift.
