Yes, no need to waste effort on 3.3.3, there are no critical problems
with 3.3.2.

I agree, fixing the sa-update's problem of repeated downloads when
some intermediate stage fails should be considered a blocker for 3.4.0.
Making sa-update IPv6 capable would be highly desirable, now that Kevin
has provided a dual-stack mirror (thanks Kevin!). A major release
is a good opportunity for both of these changes.

I still need to fix one issue with AskDNS plugin...
