For newer packages on a released distribution, have you heard of backports?
Where do you draw the line between the OS and applications? Are perl and python part of the OS? GTK+, Qt?
You say it's a technical problem, but the technical side has been solved several times. Autopackage has been around for years and got approximately zero traction. I haven't changed my views on the utility of distributions since the last time this was discussed on LWN so I won't repeat myself.
