Binary packages for releases and portupgrade

It's time to bite the bullet.  My 1.3 GHz Pentium-M Notebook just
can't keep up with the port building.  I need OpenOffice and stuff and
the party is really over at that point.  I need something with binary

Do I understand that correctly if I run 8.0 release I get to have
prebuilt binaries as recognized by portupgrade?

What happens to the minor security updates? Can I follow TRELENG_8_0
and port portsupgrade recognize this as something that uses 8-release
binary packages?

Any other recommendations?
