I edited an older question and then people complained about bumping such an old question to the front page for a minor edit.
If such an edit is not worth bumping the question, I think this should not stop you from editing, but is a misfeature of the site to bump it to the front page. Either there should be a threshold when a questions is bumped (and maybe an age limit) or an option for the editor to prevent bumping.
Then questions can be improved without annoying somebody.
While there is a point in getting more reviews of edits, this prevents at least implicitly by discouraging them through complaining users drive by edits, where I for example cannot really help with the question, but correct some minor issues like wrong tags or spelling errors. I think nothing should prevent someone from improving a question or answer, but of course not everybody needs to see the question again just because some punctuation was changed.
