My vote would be that we ship unofficial build support for VS2019, but
make it very clear in the release notes that nothing was tested in the
1.70 release for VS2019, and stuff may not work there.

Unless maintainers wish to declare that they have tested their library
on VS2019 (I have, for Outcome, it failed on VS2019, I added a workaround).
