?? It was proposed in mid-November with no objections, so your
question seems a little bit backwards to me.  There's no point in not
using the new stuff, unless you know of a critical reason to reverse
the decision and use the older Glib/Pango.  Perhaps that's what you
meant and was your purpose?  Sorry, I'm just a little confused, that's

(Also, the question confuses me; it sounds like "Other than all the
improvements in new Glib and Pango, is there any reason to use them?" 
But admittedly I haven't watched them that closely and maybe there are
other major improvements I'm not aware of)

Yes.  For example gedit in the 2.13.5 release smoketesting wouldn't
work without glib 2.9.3; so 2.9.3 got into the release despite getting
out a little late.
