CentOS is a very different beast from Fedora in this regard. The EPEL
build of KDE uses the LTS version.

My question is specifically about drops of new major component
versions. I am trying to understand why the schedule is like this,
beyond the matter of Plasma releases (as the problem I had was with
Framework and not Plasma).

New major component version drops are a bit of a lottery; I can well
believe that for some people they always went flawlessly so far, but
they are an inherent risk. If I could understand the schedule, perhaps
I could come up with a mitigation strategy.
