I'm not really in favor of a one-size-fits-all approach to this.
Our various releases have had different levels of uptake and don't
necessarily all deserve the same support lifespan.
Case in point: we already obsoleted 8.0 and 8.1 for our Windows users.
How sensible is it to argue that they'll deserve a lifespan equivalent
The above numbers seem reasonable as a rough guideline, but I think the
actual decisions will need to be taken on a release-by-release basis.
