Something like this, assuming 1.10 is the first long term support:
1.10 - Long term support (2 years)
1.11 - Standard release (1 year)
1.12 - Standard release (1 year)
1.13 - Standard release (1 year)
1.14 - Long term support (2 years)

Those wanting new features can go for the standard releases, and those
looking for stability and better support can stick with the long term
support releases. It should strike a decent balance between getting
features out the door and support.

Just a thought.
