I don't see any problem. Firstly, we haven't (yet) promised any overlap period, although it would be unreasonable not to have any overlap so we should certainly aim for something like that and maybe state it explicitly. But in any case we do not promise any minimum amount of support -- we do not promise to release at least N backports per release line, or to backport a particular fix to every supported line within N days -- so if we are struggling then the support period of one or more of the older release lines will simply expire before we get around to it, and that is just "tough luck" or in other words the normal operation of a volunteer-led project.
So I am not worried about that.

Yes, if and when it happens.
