True, but consider that moving to Fedora N+1 requires one to reconsider
within 6 months. As such I'd say choosing the Fedora N+1 option when Fedora
N+2 does not meet ones needs or expectations and one decides to put off on
upgrading to Fedora N+2, leaves them with a one month upgrade opportunity
after Fedora N+3's GA after all, and so is not exactly without penalty.

Kind regards,
