I suggest you report a bug. If the security and bug fixes are significant then the package will be updated sooner rather than later

Ubuntu is not a rolling release distribution and packages can be left in favour of stability. This is especially true in the LTS releases.

See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qemu for the versions of qemu that come with the different Ubuntu releases.
