The problem is that you're not getting Support, whether Long Term or Short 
Term or Any Term. Those are stale, a year or more out of date.

I agree there's some value in sticking to the 5.15 or 6.2 line because there 
will eventually be updates, even if late. But we must balance that with the 
possibility that the choice was misleading. We don't want someone to choose 
6.2.4 now only because it's under the "LTS" heading, but not get a single 
update for the next 10 months.
