This type of discussion has to be lead, before making a LTS promise !
Trying to change this later - without having any argument beside, that
maintaining stable branches is cumbersome - makes your LTS promises
nothing but unreliable.
But IMHO you are also asking the wrong audience. Qt development is the
right group, when discussing if a release should be a LTS one. But if you
want to change the cycle of an existing LTS version you should ask those
to whom you made the promise: the users.
Speaking for myself: I'm only interested in LTS versions and I could
easily live without releases that never go beyond 5.x.1 ( like f.e 5.10 ).
