The cycle as it is, especially for people working both upstream and downstream at the same time, is complicated enough.

Nothing in this proposal is talking about a longer time between feature 
freeze and release, as far as I know (maybe I missed that somewhere).

In that regard, the one year cycle does not make the release any more 
stable, it just means a bigger pile of stuff dumped on you when you 
finally get it and upgrade.
