many of my students were scared by the name "unstable" and did not
want to touch it.  I don't think they are unique in that respect.

I know that for GCC, for example, we call mainline, "experimental" -- not
"unstable".  Personally, I would prefer to reserve the "negative"
sounding "unstable" to branches like "build-improvements" -- which
really can be very unstable :-)

I agree.
