The upside is that it's easier to identify when a regression was introduced.

If the repo just has one release closest to the branch point, then there 
are thousands of commits between each release. However, if it has all 
the releases, the range of commits between one beta an another, or one 
minor release and another is much sorter, so it's much easier to 
identify which commit introduced the regression, specially for releases 
older than 4.3, where we don't have bibisect repositories.
