I want us to get to #3.  Lets get to 1.0.0 sooner rather than later so we
have more numbers to play with (0.96 == 1.0.0?)

Regards #1, +1, but how to verify we do not destabilize 0.94?

-1 on #2.  Just confuses.

As has been said already, we'd probably not be having this conversation nor
feeling the need to backport features if 0.96 was out.
