If they are more conservative--LibreOffice 4.2.6 is a solid build, somewhat lacking in the latest 
office features.

Not for everyone... the fact that the new feature of 'inline editing of Input fields' is BROKEN (regression) when it comes to pasting into it, the entire 4.2.x line has been totally unusable to us (and many others who rely on this capability).

If they have more tolerance for change, and accept the potential for some as yet undescribed bugs 
affecting use, then early adoption of the 4.3.0 branch is a reasonable choice.

Both are good well tested software packages.

Still? Fresh? Mature? Toddler? Teenager?

This is not just nonsense, it is insanity.

Do it like Debian:

4.2.x = Stable

4.3.x = Testing

Then move on to more important things - like fixing the above mentioned bug so a large segment of users can actually use these newer 'stable' versions.
