Sure, we just need to set it in the global configuration instead of
on a per-project basis.

Not a convenient one anyway... we could probably merge (hundreds of)
ACL changes preventing approvals on that branch for the projects
participating in the EOL process, but that's probably worse than
accepting that there might be a patch or two created, reviewed and
landed on some project between the EOL tag and branch deletion. The
additional changes that merge after the tag won't effectively be
reachable once the branch is gone anyway (you could hunt them down
in Gerrit, but there's no longer a branch in Git containing them an
they're not in the history of any tag at that point). It's probably
neither common nor disruptive enough to be worth our concern.
