I meant:
  * full backports for the greater of (until the (N+1)th LTS release) and (2 years)
  * security/corruption fixes for the greater of (until the (N+2)th LTS release) and (4 years)

So if someone ignores all the non-LTS releases from now on, the promises they get for LTS
releases would correspond pretty much exactly to how we have been managing all of our release
up to and including 1.10.

BTW, as well as designating 1.10 as LTS, we would also designate 1.9 as an LTS release (which
is now in its "security/corruption fixes only" support phase). And the way we are treating
1.8 (which recently reached the end of its security/corruption fixes support period) would
be exactly the same as if we had designated 1.8 as an LTS release.
