I don't agree with most of your arguments. Rhythmbox is not an
application from the GNOME desktop, so where GNOME 2.16.1 updates are
bug fixes update, that rhythmbox version change some hundred source
files and some ten of thousands lines of code. How can you make
statements on how many bugs will have that version? The fact that it
installs and works fine for some people doesn't mean it has no bug.
rhythmbox is a main package too, so it's not a few days after the
freeze, rather some weeks after it

Anyway, that said I think than having the new version would be nice:
some users will like to have it, it'll be easier to maintain (near of
upstream code to apply new fixes by example), and it fixes a bunch of
bugs opened to launchpad. I've the update ready and asked an UVF
exception approval yesterday, if the update get the approval the updated
version will shipped with edgy

Next time could you open a bug on launchpad? That's probably a better
place for new version request (if everybody starts mailing the list to
ask an update for its favorite application the list will be flooded and
we try to keep it as a working place than busy people can read too)
