I agree, 2 years support for the LTR releases seems more useful. But 
this would then mean, that if we have an LTR release every year, that 
we'd need to maintain 2 LTR versions in parallel.

Or we'll try the Ubuntu release cycle ... every 2nd year there will be a 
release with long-term support and then maintained for 4-5 years (seems 
a bit long to me). The Ubuntu release cycle works really well for my 
Linux servers - I have to say. I use only the LT Ubuntu releases and 
have a good mixture of being relatively up-to-date while only having to 
do major upgrades every second year.
