Well, technically, it should work, but maintenance as updates
will go on until Bullseye stabilisation will be... challenging,
especially if security vulnerabilities are requiring
corrections, and packages made available in Debian Buster are
not sufficient any more.

Definitely something to put on the table with the client, one
way or another...  or giving a hand with buster-backports ?
