Feature/bugfix releases should not be needed. -preX kernels are feature releases and -rcX kernels are bugfixes. But Linus only releases -rcX kernels so one nevers knows when a kernel is supposed to be stabilizing.
A -rcX kernel should really be an invitation to interested people to give the kernel a test drive. Those interested people might not be that interested in running kernels having new and buggy features.
