EOL is not, literally, EOL. EOL just means the complete end of support, in

that version continue to live.
Sure, but it also means there's no way to push updates for it, bugs
aren't allowed for that version and support channels are likely to just
tell you to upgrade if theres a difficult problem.
Pretty soon, in fact as of the next release, we'll have users who
stuck on an EOL release.
There will always be such users for a variety of reasons.
