I don't believe this is accurate, and is in fact a big problem that I
have with this proposal.  Things like "N may not be more than 2" and
"architecture must be available for purchase new" are not things which
the Debian community is likely to be able to fix.  Supplying more than 2
machines, and the manpower to admin them, is something the community
could do and if that happens and someone offers to join the security,
RM, etc teams to handle post-release support I think the arch should 
be released as stable.
