tl;dr: --- that statement by itself overlooks the obvious.
Not ALL packages become unsupported that first day of that

Not to be too direct about this, but isn't the RHEL 6 primary
maintenance date (through 2020 11 30) a closer maintenance
depot to look at and to compare against ?
I don't see how that relates to Fedora. Could you elaborate on what you mean?
Packages NOT in RHEL have a closer date, perhaps, but RHEL
(next, assumedly 8, but ...) has not dropped yet. A
subscription customer _should_ be migrating toward 7 at this
point, but as this is not a costless thing, such migrations
tend to be ... with a deliberate pace
Agreed but yet again, this doesn't like something that would impact Fedora.
