Any other feedback?  Francois, you had the longer list of objections;
does this feel more like it's on the right track?
While it's nice that this proposal got summarized, the main question I have is:
What's broken about the current system?

I just have the expression "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." going through my head.
I think having a 6-month interval between releases is probably optimal. OpenIndiana just had a release exactly one year after the previous one, and thus OI felt quite stale over the last months. So I think one year between releases is too long.

I have the feeling this is much more about limitations of the pkgsrc design then about the existing release philosophy. If so, I'd suggest altering the pkgsrc system in the vein that you'd already suggested. It would be nice for me to have a clear summary of what problem this proposal is trying to address. Maybe we come up with an alternative solution that doesn't require a change in the release schedule.
