Please go on. I'd like to see the reasoning behind not having a stable  
tag that represents the same revision as /tags/2.5.1, etc?

Its trivial create two tags, one for the named version, and one for  
the standing 'production/stable' tag. And given that WP doesn't  
release a build lightly, it seems like it would add very little  
overhead to whatever the existing process is. And if the process is  
automated, then the overhead would be barely non-existent.
