The problem is that there _aren't_ bug fixes for these old releases. When 4.x

"oh crap, there's $importantfix, in 4.x, but we either need to *spend the
manpower* to backport it ourselves, or ship buggy/security-issue-plagued
You just said that upstream backports security issues, so your sticking
with 4.x-1, you'd have security fixes for it.
