Correct ...

That is when the upstream provider stops doing updates ... so we also
stop doing updates as well.

The entire CentOS-4 distro would then move to the vault

By that time ... in 6 years ... there should be a CentOS-5 and CentOS-6
and CentOS-7 active (based on an 18 month release cycle ... that is
dependent upon the upstream provider).
