Same thing with anything that materially changes the UI or the MM flow or mechanics. At the moment, changes like this just affect a handful of testers, and it only impacts testing, not our production use of MM.
MM5 as you said ATM "affect a handful of testers" and it needs to grow and expand. MM5.0 is builders block like LEGO and I've seen MM grow from 1.x to 5.0 and what can be made with single brick wall.

To bring order there must be a chaos to put in order.

All this will slow down progress ... ie much slower, not much faster.
It is not unknown to MM that progress is seen from build to build.

Now is the time to address any apparent areas of confusion, like filter|search or increased consistency between the modes ... IMO
Addressing "any apparent areas of confusion, like filter|search or increased consistency between the modes ... IMO" is priority and must be addressed ASAP along with greater stability.

Adding new features in MM5 is much easier and open than any earlier MM, take for example All Nodes where in MM4.x it is core feature and MM5 allows it to be separate script that can be easily changed/fixed where instead in MM4 CORE app needs to be recompiled. But if MM4 was perfect there wouldn't be MM5 right?

And for your worries just look at past and differences from MM2.x -> MM3.0 then MM3.0 -> 3.2 and 4.0 -> 4.1 https://www.mediamonkey.com/news/2011/ and you will see that Version number doesn't mean we are done, but barely that we are just starting new chapter.

I think that the situation is that the new design is more flexible ... but not much of it is intuitive, nor based upon common practice ..,. it is hard to get to grips with unless you happen to be the designer, or have enough time and patience to experiment .... although we have not yet seen the tuts and online help material that is coming ... hopefully.

This becomes a a "problem" when the old way of doing things is removed ... it is great that we now have better (depending on your POV) ways of doing things, but this is no good, where the old ways are removed, unless the new ways are obvious and simple ... and they are neither of those things initially.
I strongly agree with Barry here.
