I could see stability being a much bigger problem for lesser-known, 'cheaper' VSTs, where the developer just sort of slapped it together for fun or whatever. then there's the issue of how well those VSTs play with each particular DAW. with REs, Propellerhead ensures that there is a certain level stability by making the developer get approval before they'll put it into the shop. of course it's not going to be completely bulletproof, but Reason with REs is still way more stable than other DAWs I've used.

and my point about ease of use was more aimed at installation and maintenance of the plugin/RE. back when I used to actually use VSTs, I recall a number of times where I had to go through a bunch of BS just to get them installed and working properly with Digital Performer. Rack Extensions, by comparison are stupidly easy. go to the store, try/buy it, let it download and authorize, and open Reason.
My non RE plugins just install and are ready to use this easy. Everything is very easy today. Only thing is, Propellerhead will NOT implement AU/VST support unless they are ready to say goodbye to their RE protocol. I am not voting because i don't need AU/VST in Reason, I already have a DAW, but I see no reason to be against it. If you are afraid of instability or complex installation procedures, you just don't buy the product, right?
