That is easier said than done, because e.g. amarok and digicam don't really
offer bugfix releases - during the last official releases, not only bugfixes
were introduced, but also new features.

The only solution would be to backport patches which is out of scope given the
current resources. And since KUA is very popular updates for those apps seem
to make sense.

Since a potential bug only influences that particular application, it is not
as big of a deal as a bug in a kde lib or kwin etc...
This is similar to the Firefox,Thunderbird release cycle for which new
versions are also shipped in openSUSE:Update.

If you enable the repo to keep the last x built rpms users can revert as they
can now with the updates from the official repo.
