Odd/even sounds like a very good idea. Personally, I too think that 2.6.17, .19 and .21 seemed worse than .16, .18, .20 and (hopefully) the upcoming .22.
Long-term support and backport risk

this is a common mistake people make, and I think the stability or lack of it for various releases is colored by their (incorrect) expectation.
now, it is true that immediantly after a problem release there is extra effort put into makeing the next release stable, and sometimes the result is that the version after that gets even more drastic changes (hurting it's stability a bit) and I think that's what you are seeing over the last year or so since 2.6.16
