True not only for this worst case. There are other issues too ;). You
might upgrade some software and the upgrade doesn't work on your
machine, then you downgrade to the working version, but the data used by
the software was transformed to another format for the new version, so
it doesn't work anymore with the version you used before. A good example
for this issue is Evolution. It's not only important if you upgrade from
one distro release to another release, it already is important just for
upgrades within one release, let alone what could happen for rolling
