This kind of depends on whether you find enough people among the 
community (especially among the Core-devs) who are willing to do more 
support and less features. From my experiences it's very very unlikely 
that people who work in their free-time will "just" stick to maintenance.

I actually agree to Jigal that "LTS" seems to be a way to move "cost" 
away from the customer/agency into the community. And the community has 
to decide whether to support this or not.

I personally prefer the way we have it right now, with the many releases 
- because that is what keeps active contributors happy. The longer I 
think about LTS the more I'd say that the marketing team should come up 
with a better way to communicate stability to the customers without that 
"strong" label.
