That's a misunderstanding. The stable branches are maintained independently of the main branch (by different people) and mainly cater to distros who (unlike) Arch are not rolling and therefore are stuck on older systemd releases for long periods of time.

There may be systemd releases that are not meant for [core] (209 was probably one), but apart from that we should be able to use most systemd releases from the main branch just fine.
