Sorry for my brief input but the intention was exactly what you extracted 
from the URI above and its valid only for the upstream. CentOS will stay 
always on the latest release as you also stated. 

 IMHO they are rare cases where some one are technically forced to stay 
on older releases. I do not argue that they didn't exist. We should not 
forget the context; stable ABI, API and mayor releases of the provided 
components, and not like e.g. Fedora with there "bleeding edge" approach 
(valid for there scenarios).   

It would be great to get some feedback what such cases 
are, that let people stay on older releases?
