I think this discussion is going down a needlessly divisive path that it
doesn't need to at all.

The discussion is assuming we have precisely two choices:

* Rigidly and with no exceptions throw out software which meets some
arbitrary approximations for determining 'maintained or abandoned'
* Change nothing

I don't think that's true at all. Would anyone on either side of the
debate object to an approach which tried to identify software that was
truly abandoned either up- or down-stream - not just 'software that no
longer required changing' - and throw that out?

I'm sure there's at least a certain amount of low-hanging fruit that
no-one would really mind getting rid of.
