Right, my "borrowed time" comment was primarily wrt the v4 baseline we
are currently targeting, since that could break at any time and since
it is already deprecated upstream may not be all that interested. I've
no particular insight into when v5 will face the same situation but as
you say it doesn't appear to be of immediate concern for Buster.

All this seems like a pretty good argument for Roger's original
proposal[0] to move to a v5t baseline which is what started this
