I have heard Precise is based on "Debian testing," contrarily to Quantal, which is based on "Debian unstable." I was wondering: would it be possible, then, for Quantal to add in significant bugs which were not present at all in the Precise version, but which were present in the Oneiric one?

Alternatively, any reasonable fears about regression issues or the like?

I am not an expert but if Quantal is based on Debian unstable, then Precise was also based on Debian unstable when it was under development.

Here is a list of bugs left from the Precise development cycle

Here is a list of bugs reported so far for Quantal

As for regression bugs, see this page

to make lts versions more usable for a longer period of time LTS only versions are based on Debian Testing other versions are based on Debian Unstable see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LTS#1 under release plan details for more info
