this is the old issue of dev and ops having different goals in terms of their jobs. Ops wants stability because uptime and a non disrupting service is paramount, devs want velocity because they need to push new features to market.

It's a delicate balance to strike, especially considering having a product with a ton of features but lackluster stability doesn't get you anywhere, and neither does having a super stable product that lacks basic features.

"move fast and break things" doesn't work in a lot of sectors. It might work for an internet startup, but good luck applying that principle to fields like large infrastructures and datacenters.
