[Yum] Bleeding and Unstable Definitions

With regards to the different repositories out there, does bleeding imply
instability?  Are packages obtained from a bleeding portion of a repository
prone to failure, or are they just the most recent version?
Does a package need a certain tenure in bleeding before being called stable?

What about unstable?  Are these similar to night (read: regular basis)
builds for those interested in before-final-release packages?

Can anyone shed some light on the different definitions?  Or is there an
RTFM I can beat myself with?
