A 'latest LTS plus current release' policy effectively limits LTSes to
2½ years for Juju users.  I think this would be very unfortunate.

(Full disclaimer, it's obviously very easy for me to vote for more free
 money (so to speak), as I'm not responsible for the support burden that
 would result from a 'all current LTSes plus current release' policy.)
