IOW, I think the discussion we're having at this stage is the wrong

I don't think so, we're discussing each and every time when to go to
12.0 and find no solution for it. Instead we make our distribution worth
since we don't feel it's good enough to be a new major release.

But we do not have a major release like that anymore, all releases are
equally major - or equally minor ;) - and therefore let's find an
algorithmic way to define this. If you have another easy algorithm, I'd
like to hear it even if voting has already started...

Arguably, I did say maybe it's a semantic difference. ;-)

If we look backwards, what distinguished 10.0 from 9.3? Or the last of
the 8.x releases from 9.0?

That might inform the conversation a bit more (I wasn't around the
project in the 8.x-9.0 releases, and only on the periphery in the 9.3-
10.0 releases, so I don't know the answer to that question personally).
