The solution for security fixes won't be necessarily backports. It should
be (in general) updates. If the update is not backward compatible and the
maintainer want to do backports, fine. Otherwise it will be an update.

People who really want to keep running the older version do so because they
/don't/ want the updates...

People who are running fedora _at all_ don't care about updates of individual programs being to new versions - that happens all the time.

However, they may not want to update to a whole new fedora release until a convenient time due to prior bad experiences with compatibility between releases. Or they've tried it on a test machine and know there will be problems with the hardware or other software they are running.
