No, I don't have data, but it seems extremely naive to assume that any
significant subset of users use backports. It is not enabled by
default, and we know users almost never change defaults. Reasonable
users assume they are receiving security updates by default.

This seems to have diverged from the topic at hand, though. I agree
your proposal to remove the +1 year requirement is better than both of
mine, so if we decide to bump the compiler requirement that's the one
we should choose.
