So a 2.14.x with possibly new features ... why not.

I am also in favor of the approach number 1: focus on the 3.0 rather
than "release when it's ready".

I think I would prefer to have another version in the 2.x branch (2.16)
to let people propose the features they are working on (even if I admit
the 3.0 version has been proposed as the next version since months)

Just an idea: what about a 2.16 being an LTR rather than the 2.14 ?

The blog post says for the approach 1 the main risk is a lack of
funding. Do we have some ideas of the amount of work needed ?
