[TEAM] Gathering "testimonials" for marketing purposes

I don't mind a Xubuntu LTS-only policy so long as a few other Ubuntu 
flavors maintain intermediate releases.  Have other Ubuntu flavors 
discussed going to LTS only?  With intermediate releases, it's possible 
to mix and match different ppa's to create hybrid systems.

For example: I download newer kernels at a faster pace than 16.04 LTS 
through the canonical-kernel-team ppa.  I've set this ppa to yakkety.  
I'm at 4.6.x now versus 4.4.x.  I prefer downloading kernels ahead of 
the curve. I don't mind having to fix a few minor faults now and then to 
maintain a more advanced kernel system.

I've always thought that LTS was for users who prefer stability over 
experimentation.  Experimenters like myself do exist, however. Perhaps 
Xubuntu is not right for me because most Xubuntu users would be better 
served by LTS only.  Perhaps it is time for an experimenter's xfce 
environment to leave the Canonical suite and become its own distribution.
