If we're going to set the date that far off, I'd be inclined to EOL
8.0 at the same time.  It'll be six years old by then.  You could
make a good argument for nuking 8.1 at the same time --- it'll turn
five in November 2010.

Personally I'll still be on the hook for maintaining 8.1 in RHEL5
so I'd be just as happy to keep it alive a bit longer, but if the
community doesn't want to deal with it that makes perfect sense.
I have no personal commitment to 8.0 at all because Red Hat never
shipped that in a RHEL release ...
