I would think the opposite can often be the case. Usually a major version is where you get to remove a load of unused features since you can make breaking changes.

Removing features could itself cause issues, and when you put that with adding new features/backwards 2.0.0 releases are almost never as "rock solid" as a 1.0.0 with a bunch of minor/patch versions as long as you're using semver.
