Well, actually i'm way out of the box. First forget about releases!! 
Releases are still in the box way of thinking, and the current 
development model. What I was saying about LTS was: qoute: (It would 
almost be as an neverending stable version of rawhide). Let me 
clarify...  In this development model you have only rawhide -> testing 
-> stable and this is a continuous flow of packages. Never broken by 
releases. Sometimes updates will change the way things behave and thus 
require an "mini freeze" this is a point in time where you need all the 
current updates to be able to get the next updates. Sequential updating 
that increments the system almost like a release but never breaks the 
dependencies like a release does.
