  As has already been stated you say:

  "IMO, more than 4 years is too much. But comparing to that, it's hard
  to be proud of under 1 year. IMO it's OK, but not more."

  We did not support it for 1 year, but for 1 year *after* the next
 release.  Therefore your objection isn't terribly useful, and the
 change won't be made.

  Either way in the future please discuss this in the relevant place,
 either the mailing list debian-security, or direct to the security
