I don't know if the board has power over suggesting to Fedora's sponsor, Red Hat, to resuffle its engineering resources, but if so, then it's a simple equation: If FL is indeed going to get more resources to prolong a Fedora release's lifespan then these resources need to be drained from somewhere. This can't be rawhide and the latest release, but maybe the previous release (like in this timeframe FC5). And it can't be Rex' magic hat either, I think it only produces rabbits and not yet FL contributors. ;)
Board can make suggestions, yes. Dictate, no. The board doesnt have the resources in hand to allocate to sub projects. It can set policies and thats the primary work that's being done. If it comes to resources, reshuffling wont work since there is noone working on the previous release that is not working on the current release of Fedora and rawhide too. Its all part of the common pool. If we pull people out of that, we would effectively reducing the amount of movement forward. It would be possible to recommend that Red Hat hire *new people* to work solely on legacy but justifying that is harder compared to active upstream or new release development.
Unifying and opening up more of the infrastructure and other ideas like that only doing critical security fixes are things to look at.
