What was the intended method for people upgrading from pre-buster
versions to find out about this change?  Just wait for them to try to do
an update, get an error message, and hope that they ask on the mailing
list instead of just commenting out the security updates line?

Perhaps an announcement on debian-security-announce (and perhaps also on
debian-user) would be in order?  Ideally one with a "PAY ATTENTION! THIS
IS IMPORTANT!"-type subject line to minimize the chance of people
missing it.
