What I regret was that -beta showed up as an official release in earlier 
versions of Update Status due to the way the information was bundled. 
We've since rectified this, but it took a lot of work.

Since this is the second time you've brought this up -- and this time 
after I corrected you last time -- please stop using this mis-informed 
example. What you're implying is not the case.
