I have been seeing lots of pending changes in master that are 5.1 material and being held back. So this way seems to be the safer approach.

Merging to stable has the disadvantage that we don't see what's going to be in 5.0, so I would prefer to rather make it explicit. Pushing changes to stable is not such a big problem.
