In case of the Linux kernel those stable branches are maintained by
dedicated volunteers. Without those volunteers there wouldn't be any
long-term-maintained Linux kernel branches.
If you (Luigi and/or Alex [Neundorf] and/or Patrick) are willing to
maintain a stable frameworks branch then nobody will stop you from doing
so. On the contrary, I'm sure many people would be grateful for your
initiative and all the work you put into maintaining such a branch. But
please don't expect other people (in particular the small number of
frameworks maintainers) to do this job for you.
Remember, that in KDE (as in any other volunteer organization) you
should never say "we should do foo" unless you mean "I volunteer to
[help with] do[ing] foo".
