This then breaks fidelity for those operators who need to either reinstall
their existing environment, which may be based on an eol or LTS supported
version of OpenStack, or for those who need to fully document their
existing, running install.

I am very opposed to removing subsets of docs, including the install guide,
after the release goes eol upstream from consumers for exactly that reason.

Watermarking the upstream docs with series and version should reduce or
eliminate the need for people to incorrectly submit fixes, patches and PRs
for eol releases that the core team can no longer support, but that
shouldn't necessitate removal of the installation instructions.
