I would have thought that switching to Tumbleweed was the more
appropriate thing to do.

are you saying you think the most recently release new version with
adds from factory is more stable/dependable/predictable than a two
year old version with bug fixes and security patches on top?

I am not saying this at all, in any shape, form, or size.

Yes, you are. People who want Evergreen *do not* want Tumbleweed. People
who want Evergreen *do not* want *anything* that's new. So in
circumstances where Evergreen is appropriate, switching to Tumbleweed
instead is *NOT* appropriate.
