I'd be curious to hear more about why you don't think that tag is maintained.

For projects that assert they follow stable policy, in the relase process we
have extra scrutiny that nothing is being released on stable branches that
would appear to violate the stable policy.

Granted, we need to base most of that evaluation on the commit messages, so
it's certainly possible to phrase something in a misleading way that would not
raise any red flags for stable compliance, but if that happens, I would think
it would be unintentional and rare.
