This is not the main concern.

My main concern is that application developers prefer to work around bugs in 
KF5 (previously: kdelibs) rather than fix things at the right level, because 
"fixes in KF5 will only be available in 6 months, and I want the bug fixed 

Your suggestion (6-months "stable" release) brings us back to exactly that.

We'd like to try something better. Monthly small increments.
Never "big" changes that break things, they get cut into small increments too. 
So no reason to buffer changes for 6 months.
