I wanted to do this, but stopped short of doing so for these reasons:
1. Given the history of the 4.4.x -> 4.6.0 journey, it's entirely
unclear to the reader what the time scale implied by "a few more
releases" would be.
2. I wanted to give people an opportunity to provide feedback on the
speed of this transition (though perhaps this is not the best way to
solicit opinions)

I take your point though, I should have provided a more useful signal.
What's your opinion on the right time scale for this transition,
