Furthermore, even if they go with 3.9, they'll still face the same choices in a couple of months' time when 3.9 can be expected to come to its end-of-life.
The only other reasonable-looking option they have when developing a distribution release would be to choose a kernel with longer upstream support. In the case of Ubuntu 13.04, the matching options were Linux 3.4 (projected EOL Oct 2014) and 3.2 (projected EOL 2016).
