Maybe because they are not bug fixes?

If we go through the trouble of releasing a new version of FreeBSD why
not include a few close-to-critical bug fixes if they are trivial and
known to be correct? I fail to see the logic of releasing an x.x.1
version that still has serious known problems that there are known fixes
for.
