No, it will not really help. Those updates for previous wine versions can 
contain regressions too.

Remember, Wine is still beta software. Releases are snapshots. Unless we have 
a declared stable release there is no point in providing unstable updates for 
old unstable releases.

Of course anyone is free to maintain a few older wine versions, for the 
reasons stating above, and he is welcome to do so. However, I don't think we 
should spoil any existing resources on that.
