I understand your point but I am afraid that my concerns were not
expressed clearly enough (sorry for that).

Let's say that we use centos as the base image. In case of a security
problem on the centos side (eg. in libssl) or jdk side, I would rebuild
all the hadoop:2.x / hadoop:3.x images and republish them. Exactly the
same hadoop bytes but updated centos/jdk libraries.

I understand your concerns that in this case the an image with the same
tag (eg. hadoop:3.2.1) will be changed over the time. But this can be
solved by adding date specific postfixes (eg. hadoop:3.2.1-20190321 tag
would never change but hadoop:3.2.1 can be changed)

I know that it's not perfect, but this is widely used. For example the
centos:7 tag is not fixed but centos:7.6.1810 is (hopefully).

Without this flexibility any centos/jdk security issue can invalidate
all of our images (and would require new releases from all the active lines)
