However, for a large segment of the embedded industry, just getting different companies moved up to 2.6.35 (within 1 version of mainline), and synchronized on a single release, will be a really big improvement. At the summit, CE vendors had kernel versions spread all over the place between 2.6.11 and 2.6.32.

I certainly understand that many people may have even longer stabilization cycles than we do, may depend on several sets of vendors to stabilize, etc. In that case agreeing on a "flag version" definitely makes a lot of sense.
