...of "freezing" ports - why?

Whenever we are waiting for the new release of FreeBSD, now is 8.3, ports are 
"frozen". There are no updates and in case of 8.3 coming release is time about 
three months. Could someone explain, please why is this "freezing" very 
important because soon after release came out there will be soooooooo many 
ports for update. On my computaer I spent about two or three days for updating 
and update is also on the new release.

Thank you.
