That's an assertion which has to be proven.

In the case of the kernel, in most cases they did, from Bodhi comments
during testing. The updates were pushed out to stable anyway.

In the case of 4.1, there were indeed important bugfixes and important
features added, but that just justifies our pushing it. :-)

But looking back to 3.5, the reason that one was requested back in FC4 was
mostly "because it was the latest available". 3.4 did not have issues of
the kind 4.0 did, and people were still asking for 3.5 (and got it - I
think pushing 3.5 was the plan all along, Than just didn't get around to it
faster). So this phenomenon is not specific to 4.1.
