Holding back updates only to make a new release interesting is not a good 
reason imho. But there are sometimes technical reasons, why updates are done 
from one release to another. The other way round, when bugs are not fixed 
with a new update in a current release but left open until the release is end 
of life is much more annoying imho and causes me more problems than often

What was the property of RHL 7.3 you are refering to? I did not use Redhat 
then, so I do not know.
