Yes. Exactly this was my intention.

After GNOME 2.x 2.x+2 update, desktop often needs small reconfiguration
and some things may even disappear.

Imagine that you are using 2.x and you will get 2.x+2 overnight. Your
desktop is now different, needs some work to adjust it, and may be even
less stable. And what is worse, there is no way to undo this change.

That's a reason, why I would like to see stable versions in form
GNOME2xx. When GNOME 2.x+2 appears, we can let 2.x repository silently
die in few weeks or months (i. e. stop updating and building).
