Regarding the date do you propose we end support on the 14th sharp or on

upgrade and us to prepare at least the answers for the missing bits of
 (so we can have an updated debian-security-support for Wheezy with
the LTS scope soonish).
If I may weigh in:
When support has ended, people will always come and ask for special
favors in the following days/weeks.
Being nice to these people is fine by me, but there is no need to change
the end-of-support date for that.
Keeping the end-of-support date at February 6 (yep!) makes it clear that
any effort made after last Saturday is purely a matter of extraordinary
That way, you are free to say at any later time "sorry, we no longer
have spare capacity to handle Squeeze security updates".
Additionally, I think it's fine to handle any updates to Squeeze on a
consultancy basis, but then not via the official mirrors.
