It depends :-)
In the case of eterm is doesn't really matter; it only has dependencies
which didn't change in the last decade, so it doesn't pose any issues
for a stretch->buster update which happens between now and the 19th.
But for other cases it could cause practical upgrade problems (that's
why e.g. Emilio only releases Firefox and Thunderbird for LTS when the
LTS+1 update is out), so in such a case it would be better to wait until
the next point release. It's really a case-by-case decision.
