I cant speak for the devs as I am not one, but I think an important
reason that hasn't been mentioned to date is downstream

In particular Ubuntu (and derivatives like Mythbuntu) have a protocols
regarding the cutoff for new packages. That is, if they can't track
the branch that the release will be tagged from they will have to ship
0.20 in their 8.04 release in April.

The definitive answer to your question about the differences between
trunk and the branch can be answered by "svn diff <trunk url> <branch
