LTS vs non-LTS makes sense for software, Iâm not sure it really makes sense for a spec. I mean if Iâm using an API implemented by 20 servers isnât it the implementations support statement that is relevant?
Maybe we should move to a model of LTS releases like OpenJDK? Sets a specific expectation with users that some versions are more "experimental" than others.
Now maybe this has already been discussed on the spec committee - I'm way behind on emails so cannot say for sure.
