The kernel is upgraded in point releases when justified (an exploit
for example).  However, there's no way Debian can release a new major
kernel revision in a point release and still call it stable (think
about a "feature freeze" as to why this is the case).

More to the point, there's no reason a user can't upgrade the kernel
themselves!
