That's really an overgeneralization - they do that within minor
release versions, but when the minor number changes, updates with less
critical fixes and even new features may be included. For example
RHEL 5.0 was released with a subversion 1.4.2 build, but by 5.6 it was
up to 1.6.11. So it isn't really set in stone that 1.6.x will be
kept into the distant future in the 6.x distribution either. But, I
thought 1.4.x was kept for a painfully long time and don't know how
the decision is made to bump application revision numbers.
