Because we don't fix bugs in older releases? and so, anyone not using
the current stable release is almost sure to find bugs in it. You can't
say to a user: "You've bumped into a bug? get the latest stable
release... oh, wait, you're on 8.0, right? too bad, you're screwed."

People don't like to manage old releases of PostgreSQL. They mostly
don't have the choice.

Sorry, still -1.
