If we decide that emacs-25 will only be used for fixing bugs, i.e. all
25.x releases after 25.1 will be bugfix releases, then yes, I think
master should become 26.1.

It would mean 25.2, 25.3, etc. will fix bugs and generally add nothing
new.  It might also mean the release cycle on the emacs-25 branch
could be very fast (beyond 25.1), with just a small number of pretests
before the actual release.  We never tried to stick to this principle,
though, except with Emacs 24.5.
