I doubt that strategy will work for Plone: Most CMF installations are
part of Plone installations. And Plone uses CMF in different ways than
other CMF installations. So the best way to get a battle-tested CMF
release is to help testing.
Besides that: Did you ever see trouble with unstable CMF releases?

Was the Plone version you used for testing Zope 2.13 compatible? At that
time CMF trunk didn't have many changes that affect Plone. The
tools-as-utilities changes I recently made might require more work on
the Plone side. Especially in test setups.

Who ever that is: The upgrade steps for CMFDefault might give some hints
what needs to be upgraded. And you are always welcome to ask questions
on this list if you have trouble with upgrading.
