I am ok with this in principle. But let me toss another situation and
see what your reaction is.
Let's say we release 5.2.0 on Monday, and on Wednesday, we find an
absolutely horrendous bug that would effect a large number of users.
Would we still wait til 5.3.0 n-months down the road - or release
5.2.1 in a matter of a week(s)?

While I don't like the idea of maintaining multiple releases, there
are occasions where it could make sense.
