As important as it is to have stable and calm wood, the question has to be asked, if it is useful to demand this characteristic for all other cases (like furniture, floor etc.) as well. My answer is 'no', because wood is a natural building material, it is alive and working. Particularly demanding requirements like motionlessness often lead to the widespread use of glue laminated products (e.g. engineered flooring) which result in huge ecological problems like toxic waste.
