Default -Release vs. -Stable

I read that OBSD is working on making -Current better: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Flavors
Quote:
In fact, as our hope is to continually improve OpenBSD, the goal is that -current should be more reliable, more secure, and of course, have greater features than -stable. Put bluntly, the "best" version of OpenBSD is -current.
but doesn't seem like it's quite there yet.

But the question I have is, are all the patches applied for -Stable failsafe? Or is there a good chance one might encounter a bug? I know that not everything is perfect, but for security/stability purposes, is it best to just run -Release until the next -Release version, or would running with -Stable be a good choice? (Considering all the major errata fixes and so forth, etc.)
