This part of the discuss let me think something.

We have both some people wanting huge set of backport and other wanting
long life release w/o change except security/bug fix.

So, why not alternate both, 1 release with backports denied but long
life, and the 2nd with backports and update but during a shorter period.
(X.0 would be the new distro with backports, X.1 the one more servers
oriented or enterprise).

What do you think ?
