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 ).
