Why is it advocated by Autodesk to do exactly THAT to overcome broken or missing features in 3dsmax 2013?!?

I know it’s a rhetorical question, but it gives them a reason to push subscription.

‘Stay current’ is lot more palatable to marketing, than ‘Hey stick with what works, because we’ll more than likely break something in your workflow in the new release – oops.’

There a bit of technical depth in there. Sales/marketing do not necessarily understand all of this. Even if they were, they wouldn’t have much control over the whole shebang with all third-party plugins. So either case, they pretty much try to get their own part right by adding features and fixing issues in future versions. It is then business as usual and telling the user to stay current. In a way, it’s true that fixes, patched and new version are usually improvements. But that shouldn’t necessarily prompt a customer to jump on the next release – especially in the context of production pipelines.
