While I agree in general to make stuff easier: Wouldn't it be better to
normally ship the F7 update some days after shipping the one for F8 (and
that itself some days after it hit devel)?

That IMHO has a important benefit: if a crucial bug made it into F8
because it was not noticed in devel or updates-testing earlier there is
still time left to *not* ship that update for F7.
