No, because during active development it is really convenient to have
the -dev releases available.
I agree that it is inconvenient that sloppy module maintainers do not
create releases. However, this is my philosophy:
If the maintainer of the module is sloppy enough as to not be able to
provide proper releases, despite the existence of a good release
mechanism, then I have little reason to trust that module developer's code.
i.e, I think people simply should not use these modules.
