The release procedure adapts to that and doesn't blindly package Y/master,
but the latest stable commit.
In other words, the release manager's job changes from watching
everything/master like a hawk for breakages to picking and choosing from
everything/master in order to produce a stable release. If X version A.B+1
doesn't work with Y, X version A.B goes into the release.
