The assumption you are making is that the only form of normal use is installing on a system you want to maintain stable for over two years.
While this may be true of the computing industry as a whole, it's not true, I think, of most LWN users. I'd guess that that most of us have some systems we are responsible for that we need long update cycles for, and also some systems we want to have the latest software on and that we don't mind upgrading every year or so.
It's very hard to cater to both markets with a single distribution; most basically, because if you release every 6 months and then support each release for 7 years... well you can do the math.
