We're discussing the difference between releases which have been 
announced and versions which have been uploaded to the release directory 
before they have actually been given all final checks, not the 
difference between dp, rc and gm versions.

The process which sometimes results in improperly functioning builds or 
installers being publicly available prior to their actual finalization 
and announcement has been discussed in the past and explained by the 
devs, who have suggested that the system was being looked at with an eye 
to fixing this.

But, I agree that a note on the download page, along the lines you 
suggest, would be a good idea :)
