I'd say: Security, yes.  Features, no.

The reason I say this is because there have been many, many, many posts in the -user mailing lists where people are confused as to what versions have what features because their local branch has a back ported fix.  [I think I run out of fingers if I count how many times just the mapred.map.child.java.opts was said to be "in 20" prior to the 0.20.203 release...]

This also adds pressure to do timely releases. :)
