I know at least one customer who is using RHEL-3 and PG 7.3 on dozens
machines worldwide. Yes, they are moving to 8.2 but this will require
some more month and eventually not all machines can just be updated to
a newer OS/DB version.

So i'm also for stopping support for 7.3 but not the way you proposed.
If we have supported 7.3 up to now, there should be an official notice
with a date, when support ends. This date should not be the next and
final release some days after the notice ;-)

Kind regards
