I don't care about the name, in fact, if you think LTS is badly choosen,
another name may be chosed, it is not the issue here. It corresponds
with a product based on fedora infrastructure, but with th epossibility
to update after the EOL. Call it fedora Updates after EOL if you like it

I thought you were speaking about RHEL. But Centos is exactly in the
same case that 'fedora LTS' or fedora itself. Volunteers, no warranty,
no contract.
