You have to balance that against the fixes which didn't happen anywhere
because the developers didn't bother retrying when they were rejected
during the prerelease bottleneck, and against the patches which hit the
kernel hard because they developed in isolation and arrived in big chunks
when contribution was opened up again instead of developing in manageable
nibbles over time.
Also, I'm guessing that there are enough people working on the kernel
now, and enough bodies practiced at kernel lieutenancy that we can well
afford to open 2.7 the instant a 2.6.0-test1 is released.
