Alter the pace of "mainline"

I wonder how this will effect development of the "mainline" 2.6.x releases if developers know there is now a safety net in 2.6.x.y. Will this support bigger destabilizing patches? I am suspecting the 2.6.x's will move to longer term releases and we'll be moving in the direction we already are.
As a casual user I've been pleased with the 2.6 releases, although I have hidden behind the shield of Debian and Ubuntu 2.6 kernels.
