Well, if x.y.1 -> x.y.2 actually is a minor update that only fixes security problems (or horrible crashes, dataloss, etc), then we *do* accept new minor versions. The problem with Firefox, the Linux kernel, etc, is that the diff from x.y.1 to x.y.2 is BIG, and involves a lot more things than just fixes for bugs.
Maybe if you had to work on a distribution with 15000 packages and try to keep them all in sync, you'd understand the necessity of avoiding major changes in stable releases...
