I think of two reasons: 

1) I don't want fixes to issues that don't make it to the release of that 
compiler. If you can find in the standard saying the new behaviour is correct, 
then fine. But otherwise, it might be a compiler bug that gets fixed before the 
release. We don't need the churn in our code.

2) even if it's a real issue, depending on how far away that compiler's 
release is, it does not qualify as "release-critical".
