And proactively remove lower-constraints jobs *when* branching as
well, since your unconstrained transitive dependencies will
necessarily drift over time (unlike how jobs relying on
upper-constraints work).

Also the lower-constraints jobs remain optional, if teams find
the hassle of maintaining them outweighs the testing benefits they
see, then they should feel free to stop running those.
