No, we shouldn't.  When 13 months is not long enough for you, we have
wonderful options for long term support.  RHEL and CentOS.  They're
based on Fedora but have a longer life span (7 years) and a slower
release cycle (every 2~ years).  With these options, why in the world
would we want to put that effort into Fedora itself?
