The only users this would effect, with your comments about version 
numbers indicating "close" compatibility, would be brand new users who 
have never had to upgrade a Drupal before. It has been Drupal's policy, 
for as long as I've been with the project, to never worry about 
backwards compatibility, and every single release I've ever used has 
always needed new and updated modules. Thus, I don't find your argument 
strong, really - it merely highlights a (desired) downside we've been 
enforcing on our users through any point release for at least two years.
