Default OpenBSD LTS

From http://www.mtier.org/news/openbsd-ports-lt-support/:

Quote:
Customers who sign up for LTS subscription service for example for the current v5.3 release will automatically receive free support for the first six months and then an additional 6 month's support until v5.5 is released. Remember that OpenBSD stable is currently 6 months only. The subscription model will include only security and stability updates and no functional updates of packages. For those customers who have a need for functional updates then please contact M:Tier directly.

The timing is no different than the support provided by the Project itself. The only difference is that the Project provides maintenance in the form of source code patches, while M:Tier provides compiled binary files.

I wondering if security updates for packages would includes non-base packages like Firefox. If they provide firefox would it be straight from ports or would they maintain an ESR version like Debian and RHEL/Centos?
