I don't think master is more unstable then 4.6. The only important addition
at this point is the new analysis framework from Teemu and a bit of code
rearrangement. The new analysis framework is (sadly) not used by most tools
and where it is, it is extremely well tested (compared to code in 4.6).

Of course you are always welcome to create your own branch (e.g. on github
or on gerrit under refs/private). But I don't think we should have some
official 4.6+X branch. That would be the first step to have a 4.7 release
and that would be a bad idea.

I would suggest you only make new developments in master. See also
