Yes, and they have been.

Even if you discount maintenance updates (which in many ways are as important than new features), FCP X has been updated much more frequently than in the Legacy days.

10.0.0-10.0.1 91 DAYS
10.0.1-10.0.3 133 DAYS
10.0.3-10.0.6 266 DAYS
10.0.6-10.1.0 428 DAYS
10.1.0-10.1.2 190 DAYS

10.1 took seemingly forever, and is well out of line with the rest of the updates. I think maybe there was a lot of debate about scrapping the Event/Project structure, who knows... And I have heard rumours that 10.1 may have been sitting around waiting for the MacPro to launch. Regardless, 428 days is still less than the 2yr + cycle of the Legacy days.

With 10.1.2 reversing the trend of ever-expanding intervals, I certainly hope they can keep to a roughly "twice a year" update cycle, in much the same way Adobe had with Premier CC updates.
