That's one way to do it.  But not the only way.  There is a middle
ground -- two years of support for every odd numbered version of Fedora
isn't nearly the same thing as *EL.  It's really just adding 11 months
to the end of the odd release.  The updates available from the 13 month
EOL of F* will still be pretty fresh 11 months later, especially
compared to how crusty the associated *EL release could be by then.

Obviously if we chart it all out, we'll see some times of continuity
where the F*odd is lined right up with the *EL version.  I'd figure that
any group that wants to do LLC Fedora would spend some time figuring
that out.
