Oh, this one is easy. Because *this is how Red Hat is telling vendors to
support RHEL point releases from now on*. I know it's easy to get lost in
everything else, but this is a huge pivot in RHEL development focusing more
directly on CentOS.

(Although as I understand it there will also be cases where code supporting
new hardware is embargoed until a release date, which complicates things in
some cases. That doesn't change the overall new picture though.)
