I think everyone would agree that boundary lines need to be stable.

Kent and others might argue: what could be more stable than recovering the original line?

Some members of what is lovingly referred to as the Eastern European Cab Company might argue: holding an original line ain't stability if it disrupts the whole neighbothood.

I imagine a court views stability as keeping the line where the landowners always thought it was (i.e. what they have based all of their property decisions and actions on). Maybe it was something they could see.

I think the whole argument revolves around what the meaning of "stability" is.
