Yes, that's been my modus operandi with ubuntu -- get onto the current LTS 
release and sit tight until the next LTS release, then (i've only done this 
once so far) incrementally upgrade to the next LTS release (there were some 
stories of issues with the auto LTS->LTS upgrade the last time). It worked fine 
for me.

I mostly sit tight because I'm picky about my user interface, and these days it 
seems both the kde & gnome folks are flailing about with "features" (that I'm 
not interested in and dont want my set-up busted).

And yes, one can migrate over to some other desktop UI regime, eg XFCE. I've 
not done that (yet) because I'm sitting tight on a gnome+kde mix that's working 
for me. when i next upgrade to a new LTS,  I may be at that time driven to look 
at other desktop UI regimes.
