Right, so we'd keep major point release branches around for 12 months, and
then retire them.

The proposal is to "support" releases for 12 months. Where by "support" we
mean, "we will apply fixes and do a bugfix release if it is necessary" and
nothing else. We will provide patches for security issues for any
unsupported releases for 24 months, I think. The actual dates don't matter
for this discussion.
