The point is that we sometimes release new clients because we found bugs
in the old clients. While we don't intend to ever remove buggy results
from stats (even if it results in us exceeding 100% completion), we very
possibly will actively ban known bad clients from the network at some
point in the future. The only reason we haven't done this yet is because
we know how reluctant users are to upgrade and that all the bugs we've
identified thus far are pretty easy to manually correct for.
