"It's nice to stay on a relatively stable release and NOT have
major upheavals in the entire platform so often, but it would be
powerful to couple that stability with the ability to easily update
key componentry in just one or two areas."

IMHO the only way to achieve this goal is to limit the number of
packages you support in the official distro. Ubuntu did something like
this with debian. Whereas debian has thousands of packages to support
across multiple platforms ubuntu has a much reduced set and only
supports intel and PPC.

Everything else is still available but on unsupported repositories.

Perhaps something similar could be done with RHEL or Fedora.
