In the case of bug fixes, I absolutely agree.  1.3 is (and should be)
a distinct track for solving its bugs.  When all is said and done,
the patches to 1.3 and 2.0 for bugs 'common' to both versions rarely
look or act quite alike.

In the case of 'features', I tend to agree they should prove themselves
in 2.1-dev first.  Consider how we 'broke' CanonicalName handling
(for transparent load balancing across ports.)  "Obviously great" 
features have a way of introducing insidious side effects.
