Because no matter what we "say" is policy, end users would continue to
see random packages change in EOL releases, which is not a clear
message.  Come on guys, if you need a longer lifespan than what Fedora
provides (the full thing, including Legacy), mayhap you need to be
looking for a different project.  RHEL/CentOS exists for a reason.
