Well, I obviously agree. I'd oppose as strongly as possible the
release of a Windows binary that crashes on (insert-image-file
"c:/test/image.png"), for example.

Trouble is, if a problem is not fixed for 22.1, there's no guarantee
it will be fixed for 22.2+. The number of people hacking Emacs on
Windows is small and varies slowly.

I try to tackle every Windows problem I have an idea how to approach.
There are some where I'm just at loss. Take the problem with TCP/IP
servers and excessive CPU use, for example. The code for event
handling and polling and the like is complex. I'll try my hand at it,
but I don't have much hope.
