This still sucks developer time to backport fixes (for things that don't 
really rebuild) and even though it's "unsupported" it's still coming from 
Fedora Legacy and thus expected to be good.  Also we can't hit every 
update, so I would feel not so good about missing some security stuff.

If we're going to turn off 7.2/8.0 it's going to be complete.  I'd leave 
the directory trees up there, but nothingmore would be added.
