reading that sounds more as if LTS actually starts to cause quite some 

I don't see that you have "just" 6 months to start the migration. Let's 
say we agree that 6.2 will be the next LTS, then you can start to 
prepare the migrations already after the 6.0 release. Why? Well, because 
you know that the most critical things won't change until then in any 
significant way, due to our deprecation cycle. And due to the fact that 
6.2 would then be an LTS, we'd rather avoid to drop features even if 
they're deprecated (as we did in 4.5). So from my perspective 6 month 
overlap would be fine, if we really agree to have an LTS.

But having an LTS (as stated in other posts) is really just a marketing 
issue from my point of view and that should/could be resolved in 
other/better ways.
