I don't know for sure, but AFAIK it is expected to follow the usual 
CentOS support cycle.

If your hardware is ARMv8, then it is definitely better to use aarch64. 
Some ARMv8 CPUs don't even include ARMv7 support (so armv7hl binaries 
won't work). ARMv7 instruction support is optional rather than mandatory 
in ARMv8 spec, IIRC.
