Ubuntu makes it very clear that their LTS is more stable and that their
other branch is more exciting.

Unfortunately, this is not always true. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS was based on a
buggy Unity, and although it was supported for a longer term than 12.10
(just to make an example) it was far less stable (because of the Unity
bugs solved in the meantime).

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will probably be a different story, because Unity is
more stable. LTS means Long Term Support, and this sometimes translates
into a mess if the user thinks that LTS = more stable. In Italy, we had
complaints about LibreOffice from people trying to use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
for enterprise deployments, which have been solved by using a non LTS
version of Ubuntu.

Again, the last version is always the best one for most users.
Suggesting the older version for enterprise deployments is just showing
an additional level of user care by offering an alternative to people
with a different update cycle.
