If every good upstream change had to be released to the current version,
then Fedora _would_ be the rolling beta some try to paint it as.
There's a point to have releases separate from rawhide.

I'd rather have developers spending time working on the next release
(especially after we've already reached the point of test releases) than
spending time trying to make major updates to previous releases.
There's always going to be some major upstream release after a Fedora
release; that's why there's always a Fedora release "just around the
corner".
