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.
