Because the percentage of database users it affects is different. 
Administrators know when they are installing a new version of Postgres

Application binaries and perhaps application developers are not as aware
of a change, and there are a far higher percentage of them in an
organization than administrators.

I just gave you a reason above, and as I said, doing backward
compatibility can make the system more complex.
