Apple Seeds Sixth Beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 to Developers and Public Beta Testers
Apple today seeded the sixth beta of an upcoming macOS Sierra 10.12.6 update to developers and public beta testers, one week after seeding the fifth beta and more than a month after releasing macOS Sierra 10.12.5, a minor bug fix update.
The sixth beta of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.
We didn't find any significant feature changes, design tweaks, or notable bug fixes in the first five macOS Sierra betas, and because Apple does not provide beta release notes, we may not know what's included in the update until it sees a public release.
macOS Sierra 10.12.6 is likely to be one of the final updates to the Sierra operating system as Apple transitions to macOS High Sierra, which was introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June.

If for some reason High Sierra doesn't go well then by next year they will assign a new name to the operating system and any negativity associated with High Sierra won't be associated with the new operating system name next fall.
The only exception would be if I buy a new Mac that requires High Sierra sometime in the next months. But I prefer to wait until there's either a MacBook with an screen larger than 12'', or a 13'' MacBook Pro at 1Kg (I don't really care if they call it MacBook or MacBook Pro, I just want a 13'' or 14'' display at 1Kg). So, back to the point, yes, I'd like to skip High Sierra, and keep calm until summer 2019.
