Comment (by leonaves1):

 Yes that is my suggestion, because the warning is shown to end-users,
 while the maintainer of the systems may be administrators, or businesses
 of whom the end-users are clients. The fact that you don't fully drop
 support for 5.6.* implies to me that you have a pragmatic view about these
 things. As a developer myself I agree that versions should be kept as up
 to date as possible but this isn't always in control of the developer who
 might be looking for the information. If I don't have information on what
 the gap between the version that "will run" and the version that will show
 our client a warning, the existing information might cause me to estimate
 a job is smaller than it is, where if I knew upgrading further would
 remove the warning I would happily tell my manager that and it would take
 less time overall.

 I may have explained this more coherently on slack, so here is the
 original conversation for reference:
