Default Package Updates for OpenBSD 4.2 and 4.3

I noticed for OpenBSD 4.2 and 4.3 that package updates are linked to
http://www.openbsd.org/pkg-stable.html
Which is actually the link for 4.1 package updates. Given the number of security and bug fixes in Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey I am wondering why package updates points to say SeaMonkey 1.14 while OpenBSD 4.3 installs SeaMonkey 1.18 and does not have 1.19 available?

The OpenBSD FAQ tends to push packages over ports but I wonder why something as large and frequently used as a browser is not aggressively updated?

Anyone have any insight into this?
