Because installing any given linux distribution is an investment by the
user. You can tell the user: at date $foo the repo is not maintained
anymore. He can plan for it to minimise the EOL pain.

This is quite different from "we'll drop maintenance whenever we feel
like and we won't maintain repo consistency, sorry if problems happen
when you depend on your system and have no time to upgrade it".
