Idealistically, I agree with you: upgrading a kernel these days is scary. It's easy to blame the new release scheme.
Practically, though, it's always been like this. In the 2.2 series, I had deep fear of upgrading a kernel up until around 2.2.8, and in 2.4 all the way up to 2.4.16 or 2.4.18 somewhere. Just think of it as part of Linux's charm.
