The Oslo libs released for those versions will continue to work, so 
you're right that it wouldn't be necessary to EOL all of the consumers 
of Oslo.

The danger would be if a critical bug were found in one of those old 
releases and a fix needed to be released. However, at this point the 
likelihood of finding such a serious bug seems pretty low, and in some 
cases it may be possible to use a newer Oslo release with an older service.
