A continuation of this logic would lead to preventing new major release of
comprising components from going into a maintenance release, would it not?

Which is perfectly fine with me, btw. I want to undestand what our release
principles are:
  - major release includes
        new major versions of the components/new components
        new versions of supported OSes/new OSes
  - maintenance release includes
        minor and subminor versions of the components/no new components
        same set of supported OSes

If this seems like a reasonable rule of thumb - let me reshape the BOM
accordingly e.g. put Fedora 15 instead of Fedora 16.
