That's impossible.  Every development means bugs, so bugfixes will
happen on all active branches.  Some of them will be different, some
identical.  But all of the branches will get bugfixes.  And the same
for new features.

With 3 branches, there's no need for feature freeze, so I don't think
I understand how all this is relevant to the issue at hand.

Also, didn't you just say that "stable bleeding-edge" should always be
the same branch?  But here you seem to be saying that it's sometimes
this and sometimes that.
