Probably there's something I'm still missing - but suppose, that we're
replacing components "the rolling way", following release branch. As I
understand, it contains debugged and well-tested versions, so, actually,
why should it differ - when we mean stability - from upgrade of a complete
system at once?

The idea is, that actually it should be the same - but instead of be done
within a hour, it could be done gradually, within six months, for example.
After every single component - well-tested - reached release branch.
