I want to be pretty careful here to say that I think that's a good idea, but I'm not sure if it's going to work well. Legacy was trying to do parts of this, right? The problem was that it didn't get a lot of attention. Debian stable is supposed to do this as well but I don't know anyone that actually runs debian stable.

Stable updates are something that most programmers/community find, well, boring. And it's hard to build a community around that.

Once again, I'm not saying that it's a bad idea, it's just hard. So I'll redirect the question a bit and ask: what's the incentive to get people to care about a stable updates channel vs. what we do today?
