Yes it is.

Branching off before tagging and keeping that branch a common
source for both, stable and master - so you can fwd merge in either, is
indeed a good solution but requires quite some discipline (and that
branch to be public, oc)

So it basically does not work on large projects - at least w/o a
workflow "tool" (that rises a staging for direct commits and ensures
sync merging) or unless you can threaten ppl. to fire them ;-)
