Because the problem to upgrade to 4.4 was that it was available on bzr
only, while 4.0 was the last branch available on CVS. So let's say that
4.0.11 was only available on bzr for some reason, then I would have been
unable to upgrade from  4.0.x to 4.0.y (y > x). If you decide to do that
for e.g. Bugzilla 4.4 and for some reason git cannot be installed, then
you would have the same problem, i.e. unable to upgrade from 4.4.x to
4.4.y. One could say I could use tarballs or diffs, but that's more work.
