comment Why doesn't the latest Ubuntu edition come with the latest stable Linux kernel version?
As well as the issue of newly found problems getting back-ported fixes for longer in certain versions, you need to consider the length of time the final testing phase before a release takes. If a new LTS kernel release were made once that phase had begun it would be foolhardy to drop it into the release - you would either keep the current version (and upgrade later after relevant testing time) or delay your release to allow the extra testing time needed.
