You just put the problem of stable packages away by doing this.
What if we change upstream from arch to manjaro?

>>"Although Manjaro is one-hundred percent Arch Linux compatible --being based on Arch Linux itself-- it is not possible to access their official repositories for use in Manjaro. Instead, Manjaro uses its own repositories in order to ensure that any software packages that are accessible, such as system updates and applications, have been fully tested and are stable before release."
