I echo your +1.

Perhaps most current stable supported, -1 stable version?

In that example, once the Liberty release of modules (or a particular 
module) is cut we would support Liberty and Kilo. When the same happens 
for M, we would deprecate Kilo and support M and Liberty.

Stable -2 also seems sane - I don't have a good sense of how far people 
are generally behind.
