Yes.

The linux kernel development has been through similar arguments about
the merits of the 2.2/2.4/2.6 development models. I can not see any
negatives in releasing a new stable version. 

Those that require  DVB-S2/H.264 can carry on using the development
tree. Those that want the other new features from 1.5 can use the new
stable release without getting dragged into requiring a non-distro
kernel and frequent updates.
