Hmmm, something like half the m68k buildds, many of which build 
security updates, run 2.2 kernels. We're pretty security conscious. I'd
feel a whole lot worse about my security were 2.2 to get dropped.
Indeed, I'm not sure it would be appropriate for us to build security
updates (or maybe anything) on unsupported kernels. :-\
