Perhaps we could adopt a release plan similar to Ubuntu. They have releases with cool, new and bleeding edge stuff followed by a release that focuses on stability and long term support.
Ubuntu's sophisticated release plan is certainly justified by its business model, and the desire to both appeal to the open source people and the corporate people without creating two different distributions.
I don't think Python has the same business requirements (neither does it have marketing and commercial teams), and having differentiated releases sounds like unwarranted complication.
Just my two non-Canonical cents of course!
