This is an interesting point.
I'd argue that in many respects, the ElRepo group is one of the primary
reasons I've stayed on with Centos as it gives me newer kernels than
what Redhat/Centos will. Packages is an entirely different discussion
and I digress. Understanding all that, the 4.4.x kernels are already
quite old. I don't have a good understanding of all the work that goes
on behind the scenes for the ElRepo team to release new LT and ML
packages but would it be possible to add more LT kernels? Maybe not all
three of them but maybe 4.4 (for the conservative people), 4.14 (for the
people who need a long life yet want a mostly modern kernel, and then
the ML line for the bleeding edge users? I know this becomes more and
more additive over the years but maybe a little more can be done to keep
Centos up to date?

If you want to stay on a single LTS branch, you want kernel-lt which is
currently 4.4.x, and will stay as 4.4.x as long as the 4.4 branch is
supported upstream by kernel.org.
I was under the impression that 4.14, 4.9, and 4.4 were all LTS branches.
Yes, longterm on kernel.org
elrepo.org is maintaining only two branches "longterm" (4.4 until 2022) and
"mainline" (latest of kernel.org).
