I second that. I made the same experience.

In my company we're 10 developers working with drupal. But not anybody is 
using an unpatched version of drupal in his projects. In our repository we 
maintain different patches only for bugfixes for drupal's "stable" versions.
And it's hard work to merge everthing every time a new drupal security/bugfix 
release comes out.
From my point of such a popular project like drupal should better care about 
it's stable versions or branches.

On the other hand I understand that in a open source project nobody could be 
forced to do something ...
