i mean why is it so important to you that the developers take the newest kernel available?

Because the kernel is never being updated after release. So might as well go with the latest LTS kernel, especially if the current stable Kernel is going to become the next LTS kernel.

Also, it's not like 4.9 wouldn't have any advantages over 4.8:

I don't see what benefit a LTS kernel has for a distribution that doesn't updates the kernel between distribution releases.

TC is a toolkit, not a distribution. Everybody welcome to customize it to his/her needs including using a custom kernel without pushing others to do the same.

Four stable updates in two weeks is plain scary, far above the usual pace. I would stay away from that version just because of that, it clearly signs it's not stable.

Same with the LTS 4.4x, one release per week :( Or in less time.
