Noone suggests that. Each release would keep the upgrade path from the  
prior one. So 5.0 keeps its update code from 4.7. And D6 keeps its 5.x  
upgrade. It just means that folks have to download 5.x if they want to  
upgrade two versions. This is not so onerous, and actually helps them  
isolate a problem to a given version should some problem arise.
