You need to warn users of the risk of testing bleeding edge software, specially with a distro supposed to be newbie friendly: newbies don't always know beforehand such things. An experienced user will probably check the bug tracker by its own, but a newbie wouldn't know. Of course, as they acknowledge it, they did put more warnings in some places, like the wiki. Stating most of the issues. Also, knowing ahead of time is a way to make an informed decision about being ready for testing.
