What's the point of Jelly Bean when there are relatively few Android devices even running Ice Cream Sandwich?

I just heard that the new Android OS, Jelly Bean, is likely to just be 4.1 instead of 5.0. Ok, I'm a little disappointed that it is probably just an incremental step instead of a significant OS update, but then I started wondering what's the point anyway, since the percentage of Android devices running ICS (Android OS 4.0) is so low, and a significant number of new android devices are still being released with Gingerbread (2.3). Are we getting to the point where new Android OS releases are outpacing implementation of the previous version of the OS?
