People might get a bit too eager and uncomment the repo and run a
pacman -Syu, only to be on the forums five minutes later asking why
something doesn't work right. If you leave it below, they will have to
either purposely install something from unstable (e.g. by a 'pacman -S
unstable/nvidia') or read up enough to realize that if they prefer
packages from unstable, they will need to move the repo up in the
list. I personally have testing and unstable uncommented but below
current and extra, so I can pick what packages I want to install from
these repositories and not be left with an unusable machine.
