In the past we've trusted statements from Red Hat that you should be
able to upgrade to newer point releases without experiencing
backward-incompatible breakage. Right now all our related tooling is
based on the assumption we made in governance that we can just
treat, e.g., RHEL/CentOS 7 as a long-term stable release
distribution similar to an Ubuntu LTS and not have to worry about
tracking individual point releases.

If this is not actually the case any longer, we should likely
reevaluate our support claims.
