If stable is not dropped, at least have a page for known 'bad problems'
for the releases. This would help to inform users why they would or
would not want a particular release.

=> My suggestion: Simply drop "stable" completely and list only the
releases with version number without further qualification. Today most
people can deal with version numbers quite well.
I fairly well agree. OpenLDAP 2.4.23 has a number of serious
problems. OpenLDAP 2.4.26 is much more "stable". I think it is
unfortunate that 2.4.23 is still listed as the "stable" release on the
downloads page. There may still yet be bugs in 2.4.26, but it is a
vast improvement over 2.4.23, 2.4.24, or 2.4.25.
