You're an optimist. For any EOL date, a vast number of users will
simply *not migrate* until they stop getting updates. The reason why is
they're not subscribed to mailing lists. We could announce tomorrow's
lottery numbers and they wouldn't notice.
I'm fine with a 12-month EOL date. It's more important that an EOL date
be made and enforced than it be any particular date. Whether it's three
months, six months, twelve, I don't care, *so long as it gets done*.
