For example GCC drops support of platforms that are not maintained for a
while. First GCC gives a big warning in release notes, and then removes

"Support for the powerpc*-*-*spe* target ports which have been recently
unmaintained and untested in GCC has been declared obsolete in GCC 8 as
announced here <>. Unless
there is activity to revive them, the next release of GCC will have their
sources permanently *removed*."

I do think that this is a useful practice.
