I was with you right up until this point.  If support for 2.6.18 is released
before the enterprise distros maintenance period ends (RHEL5, March 2014), then
we are doing a serious disservice to these users.  There are a very large number
of users using RHEL5 (I would wager that at an absolute minimum, 80% of Asterisk
users on RHEL are still using RHEL5), and I don't expect that to change for at
least 18 months, when they start to realize they're losing support soon.
