It's not really a matter of rolling over.  They "roll over" all the
time and much more frequently than others.  Gentoo has a history of
providing options to use the latest stuff, long before most distros
even talk about it.  OpenRC is a perfect example, Gentoo gave up on
SysVinit and switched to OpenRC as a default init system long before
systemd and upstart were around.  OpenRC implements a lot of new
features.  Gentoo is clearly not a good choice for someone wanting to
stay old and crufty.  Stick to Debian Stable and Arch (somewhat) if
you are old and crufty.
