This is technology. If you slow down you get left in the dust. Slowing down releases isn't the solution.
Nothing says these manufacturers have to update their year and a half old devices. In fact it's better for them if they don't, because you'd be coming up on an upgrade and it would be wasted man hours.
If you want the fastest android upgrades possible, see what root has to offer. Chances are you can already get jelly bean for your phone that way
