You're suggesting that we should not fix bugs in the previous major
release of NetBSD?

Even if this were a good idea (and I doubt anyone but you thinks it is)
it would require _more_ tags per branch, not less, since each major
release requires a -base tag, while minor releases are made from the
head of the underlying major release branch.

Again, I suggest that you might want to get some experience actually
doing this before you act so certain that you know how to tell others
how to do it.
