Looks Good To Me.

That will set a compromise between burden and stability that should be
more suitable for the new regular releases, in particular, and perhaps
for the LTS releases too. We'll most probably think again about this
matter when we next do an LTS release so there is no need to think too
hard about that just now.

Yes, we can add that too. (You're sure it's not there already? It sounds
very familiar.) Anyway, I agree with the sentiment, and it's useful to
have such expectations written down.
Do you want to go ahead and update it (after waiting 5 days for anybody
else to chime in)?
