Who exactly said "doom"?

CentOS Stream won't match corresponding stable RHEL version, that's all. 
While CentOS was matching it, it was stable enough to use it safely on 

Now that it becomes constant beta, it might be considered less stable, 
all the compatibility arguments have been uttered many a time.

Doom or no doom, everyone decides for oneself.

The primary problem is breach of trust. All the other consequences are 
mostly technical.
