How can you be so dogmatic?
The fact is, a "clean install" is going to fail completely on some machines,
so unless you call that "predictable" 
I don't see how your statement can be true.

I've had 3 complete installs of RedHat and Fedora that have failed,
perhaps out of 50.
One was a SCSI-only machine,
and the other two were Sony Picturebooks.

I've had one upgrade that completely failed -
that was FC-2 to FC-3 on a Sony Picturebook.
However, the machine still worked (sort of).
I managed to upgrade in the end using yum.
