By looking at what's going on in Stream, these changes for the
"latest-and-greatest" convergence will be landing in RHEL 8.6 due out
in a few months. Best guess either something happened or the "until"
was meant to mean something else.

I don't know the decision making that's happening in the AV group or
the roadmap/priorities, etc. Only from scraps I pick up and what's
publicly posted on git.centos.org.
