I think people are saying they'd like a third option in between RHLP and
RHEL WS, something where the desktop is long-lived (say, three years
maintenance) but doesn't have bundled support.
It is my understanding that keeping multiple Errata trees for a long
period is the problem that making RHLP a short life cycle product is meant
to solve. I imagine that many more dollars go into backporting patches
than into answering phones.
