It may be interesting, unless kernel developers ignore the bug-fix only release and work on new futures by themselves in the meantime.
Which many will do, causing total chaos in the next merge window. That's the reason why it was not done yet, AFAIK.
Now, if we could get a sufficiently big number of kernel regulars (like at least 50% of the ones with more than three patches merged in the last three releases) and all subsystem maintainers (so as to keep the new-feature-craze crowd under control) to pledge to the big bugfix experiment, then it just might work.
