We here are also just in the process of upgrading to 8.2, so in
principle I agree... except nobody is forced to go through ALL versions
- skipping over every second release is perfectly OK... but: shorter
releases would allow people to install only releases which actually
bring performance/functionality improvements they really need. All other
releases can be skipped... in fact you could possibly go for installing
a specific release only on some of the DBs based on what you need there.

The main question is if shorter release will impact quality - from a
user point of view (and I can only give my opinion in this respect) I
don't see any other possible disadvantage...
