-1 from a distro packager perspective. LTS just does not fit together with fast-moving distributions, and we really need those bugfix releases for the branches we ship. Especially QtWebEngine requires those bugfix releases for security fixes, and tracking LTS is not that great there because the base Chromium gets old pretty quickly, and websites start complaining (e.g., Google already complains about 5.9 being an outdated Chromium) or even stop working altogether. The frequency of LTS releases has also so far been totally insufficient to keep up with Chromium security fixes (see the huge amount of time – almost a whole year! – between 5.6.2 and 5.6.3). I would rather see LTS canceled and more effort put into the current releases, if having both is a problem.
