No, he didn't. His logic was flawed (as often his arguments are).

He said:
"A release is implicitly stable, so the converse usually also holds
true: stable is released."

He says that the converse usually holds true. First of all, converses usually 
do not hold true. Conditions that are both necessary and sufficient are the 
exception, not the rule. Second, it does not hold in this case either.

A release is implicitly stable, or we would not have released. And everything 
we stabilise, we want to release. But note the time component: there are 
"stable" things we want to release but have not yet released.

I think the name fits just fine.
