You say that but "stable" on desktop also means outdated and lack of features. In addition, stable desktop applications does not mean bug-free, they always have unimplemented features and stubbed functions. Just look at ProjectCenter from GNUstep. It's stable (as there are only bufixes and no new features), but you can't even change the editor's font, at least in debian stable, where I tested it.
Who would use Gnome in an enterprise distribution like RHEL? If you want an user interface for your work, just go with consumer distributions like Mint or Ubuntu
