In terms of features, yes.  The users that 2.0.X aims at are mostly
indifferent to features.  Will their perception of the riskiness of
2.0.X be that much better than that of 2.1bY?  That is the question.
If the answer is "no", 2.0.X is basically a waste of effort.

My point is that a "read my lips: no" policy reduces risk (in reality
a little and in perception a greater amount) while reducing cost.  It
makes the user's decision easy.
