Is this simply a way to say : "Just update the fs to ext4!"? After this what reason will we have to go on using ext3 instead of ext4?

Stability and safety. Production environments are going to be more comfortable with a small incremental change to their existing FS than they are in switching and potentially being bitten by one of the many major changes in ext4.

I think the idea is that ext3 is being made less reliable so that it will no longer be more reliable than ext4, to try to remove that argument against "upgrading."
