Thats not true alphas and betas land in the libreoffice-prereleases PPA at https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/libreoffice-prereleases/+packages only. And release candidates might land in both the generic ppa and the -4-2 ppa as described on https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa. Actually most releases are copied to both ppas at the same time.

The difference between the generic PPA and the libreoffice-4-2 PPA is that the generic PPA will see a LibreOffice 4.3.0 final version some day, while libreoffice-4-2 will never have a version higher as 4.2 and thus make no change in the major version.
