Should adobe release a 7.x patch for Reader/Professional?

It seems that Adobe is leveraging a vulnerability in their 7.x series of Adobe Professional and Adobe Reader to cause people to upgrade to 8 which was just released this week.
They’ve released a dll file that you can copy into place overwriting the vulnerable version in 7.x, but that solution is neither easy for most home users or approprate for enterprse deployment.
I’m well down the path of testing a 7.0.8 deployment and don’t particularly feel like starting over.
