The "harm" is the developer time spent on doing so.  Releasing back
versions takes nontrivial effort (witness what it took to get 7.3.6
out the door :-().

Also, quite frankly, I don't want to encourage people to keep using
such old releases.  If they are installing on a new machine they should
update to something newer and less buggy.
