I agree with all you have said. I'd rather keep working on feisty only with
no updates to edgy/dapper
and leave that to the backports team. There are no critical (data loss or
security) bugs in xubuntu
dapper or edgy and only those are supposed to get into updates even if for
ubuntu dapper this rule is
not strictly observed. There are annoying crashers which get fixed as well
and maybe others.
OTOH I can feel that being left with a version which could be made better
with a few well chosen updates
is not ideal either. It's hard to define what is truly serios/annoying
problem and what isn't. If we look at complaints
and bug reports besides the menu being lost in early dapper there was no
other bug which deserved an update IMO.
