I wouldn't tell so. It is a straightforward backport source for distribution kernel. Most 2.6.16 patches easily apply to 2.6.18 too. Also there seem no last 2.6.18 stable coming forward (2.6.20 around the corner of course).
So the 2.6.16 support is worthwile, i'd like to see it linked from kernel.org instead of the _really_ outdated not maintained 2.2 tree.
