Could you elaborate on the "change of mind"? As far as I know (but can't 
find the reference right now) oldstable is supported one year after a 
stable release or until the next release, whichever comes *first*[1].

[1] Since Debian has been releasing once about every 2 years this 
usually means oldstable is supported only one year after the release.
