Just for the sake of the argument, that is not granted.  The above is
true only if the user base remains constant. Arguably, rolling is
appealing to users of other existing "rolling" distributions which are
based on Debian anyhow (name one) and, who knows, also to current users
of release-every-6-months derivatives who want more support on all the
archive.  Yes, mine is speculation, but it seems to be in the same
ballpark of a hidden assumption in the above.
