I think that's a bit too aggressive.  We have a lot of software which is
a bit beyond maintenance, and people run it sometimes.  While everybody
should upgrade, deleting the package immediately isn't really helpful to
users.   But, I see your point.  So perhaps just after Q4 is cut, and we
can warn about removal in the Q3 announcement?
