Thanks for the clarification, it's a good and fine point.

Therefore, the question out there is:  "Who will provide support for a
Long Life Cycle (LLC) Fedora version?"

One choice is to try to convince the Project to extend the life cycle.
That seems (to me) like a hard field to try to plow again; it's already
plowed, planted, and producing good harvests.

Another choice is to add a parallel team that provides the LLC Fedora.
It's like annexing the field next door and planting it in a new way.

If your goal is to have an LLC Fedora for whatever reason, I encourage
you to focus on the second option.
