I think you're being far too kind to closed-source commercial programs.
Most of them are just as bad at releasing. They just release to fewer
people, for the most part.

On the positive points, I agree that releasing large version numbers,
(x or x.y form) would help attract users, especially if most user
application developers commit to supporting those releases as long
as reasonable.

I don't think you can compel more developers or rule out bugs, though.
