That's IMO a very dangerous thing to do. These wouldn't be stable
releases without security support. Unless there's 3 times the staffing
in the stable release team, let's not do that. Though I very much
welcome anyone to give feedback on the beta releases (I'm very close
from announcing Mitaka b2 for Debian & Ubuntu btw).

We've been discussing release cadence over and over again. Some want it
quicker (mostly devs), some want it slower (mostly: ops) and always, the
consensus was that what we have right now is a good compromise.
