Absolute rubbish! It is you who are misguided, not our policy.
Have a good look at the 5.0.1 point release changelog. It is not
exclusively made up of security fixes.
We have never had a policy of only fixing security holes for stable
releases. Other severe problems causing crashes or bugs that cause
end-user data loss *are* included.
Point releases happen frequently enough so that stable users need not
suffer a long time with major problems between releases, and the
'proposed-updates' are available to the public between point-releases.
