Are you claiming that all new features that aren't disruptive are
included in updates to existing distribution versions?

Shouldn't that mean that an updated prior release Fedora would
be very much like the next version as released?  That hasn't
been my experience. I typically see many new features that I
wouldn't consider disruptive to have in the prior version but
I suppose that's a matter of opinion - if you don't want to call
it policy.
