I think that part of the misunderstanding is that I don't see "six
months" as equivalent to "stale".  We're not even to the seven year
point of RHEL 2.1.  And there are definitely things that I personally
migrated from elvis -> fedorahosted that, while not relevant with
"current" distros still are for older RHEL.

It stays for how long?  If we look at the set of what's being talked
about here, I can already tell you that the vast majority are going to
fall into the "wanting to be kept" category.  Which means that we're
doing a lot of administrative overhead for how much gain?

Within what time period?  And if it later becomes relevant/needed again
we just hope that someone has a backup?
