Except any downstream that is unable to align on the LTS schedule either
permanently or temporarily would have to wait a full extra year to
resync, which would make them decidedly unhappy I think. I'm sure some
distros have had to realign downstream releases to "the next" upstream
one more than once, so... :)

This has the same problem as you highlighted above, which is that we all
have to agree on the same 12 months that we're supporting that span,
otherwise this collapses to just the intersection of any two projects'
