It is right now yes. This is not that good of a situation though. Having dates on the roadmap is definitely a good thing, as developers can better work towards these releases and people can anticipate releases. It's a bit silly to do if there are no features for such a release anyone wants to commit to, but dropping compat w/ certain MW versions in itself justifies a new release IMO. So if you can plan compat dropping, you can plan releases for it.

I don't think there is a particular need for this, but it's a wiki, so feel free to edit as you see fit :)
